My friends and I were trying to build a jump in his backyard in Stowe the other day after we got 3 feet of snow, the snow was powder (light and a little fluffy). We built a solid kicker about 3 feet high and packed it down firm as we went. But as we got to the top layer it was really hard to keep the shape, every hit it kept getting large gashes in the lip and other places.
Summary and Question: Trying to build a large backyard kicker with pow. How do I get the lip and top layer to stay packed and firm? I've seen people use salt and water but I'm not sure exactly the best method. HELP...
