Let's face it, summer is too long, why should us Quebecors have to wait until november to ski? We decided it was time to take matters into our own hands. We started on day 1 with a trip to reno depot. All we had was a sketch with no measurements and a list of items we thought we might need. We went straight to the back where they keep the plastic sheets and chose the thickness, 4.5mm Lexan and decided 10 inch wide sheets would do the trick. We were a bit unsure about its strentgh so the guy let us use and old slab and smash it with a hammer, which did absolutely nothing to it (This shit rocks!). We also decided then and there that the box would be 20 ft long. We then got our coping in the trolly and moved over to the wood section. We examined all 14 2X4's to make sure they weren't warped. We got a few drill bits, including a countersink, some screws, and we headed towards the cash. The bill added up to aprox. 400$. Stoked out of our minds, we put everything into my Honda civic, and let it hang out the back by like 3 feet. The moment we got back, we started building.
So 40 hours of labour later, and another 150$ spent at reno depot, our box was finally finished yesterday. Weighing in at about 300 lbs, here's what it looks like now.
Now the real question...would it slide? We made some trollies and placed the box on them, then tied it to the back of my car. We drove over to the closest park with some incline and set it up.
We made three trips to the nearest arena carrying buckets of snow. Then with a sketchy in run, tiny kicker and little landing, we hit the box hoping it would slide. And yes, Lexan slides like crazy! We had a small session before the lights went out, here are the pics.
Skiing or sex?
'honeslty for me skiing, while I'm having sex I think about skiing, but when I'm skiing I don't think about sex at all'
