AT-ATIt would melt faster than you could grind it.
Just go to a local hockey rink and take the shavings from the Zamboni
_yager_dude you'd have to buy a fucking tree grinder to shave the amount of ice you would need.
RparrHaha that would be fucking great if somebody did that.

COOOOPNo but I do have a little sister.
-snochainz-Actually, this has been attempted by the STEPT crew. It didn't work…
speaking from my own experience, you can actually just get a fair amount of ice and cover the intended landing area with it. you can either buy bags of it at the grocery store, or just make a helluva lot. I know a guy with a commercial ice maker and used to "borrow' a large cooler full of of his ice once in a while.
TheskiingguyWhat's up NS!
I'm looking to try and buy a type of ice grinder/shaver for my dryland set up. I know it's best to just go to a ice rink and pile up a bunch of the snow, but the nearest one is a couple hours away and would become a major hassle to do this every few days.
I was thinking since I have one of the high capacity freezers that I could freeze a bunch of buckets of ice, then use some type of shaver thing for snowcones, and then just spread it out over our dryland slope for some extra speed.
Anyone else have any experience doing this? and does anyone know of any makeshift ways that I could shave the mass quantities of ice without having to buy a snowcone machine and rip it apart?
perryhunterI think what would you like to happen is a lot costly! Also it will take some time and you can not do it alone, which means you need a help from some carpenter, etc. and you have to pay for their salary and will cost you lots of money. Unlike you'll just load your car with a diesel, then travel for hours, even once a week then that's it!
WillardYou could always just give skiing a break and find a summer hobby...
