You really don't even need the water. YOu can sort of build a pile about the size of the jump you want and pack it down with the shovels then walk sideways from the base of the takeoff to the lip and back down and back up. Make sure to get your sks together and just stomp it up and down. Don't be forceful and try and kick the shit out of it. But just go up and down and your wait will back it. Then you can add more snow as needed. If you want your kicker to freeze into a block of ice ad some water or salt. If you're trying to freeze it make sure you get it nice and smooth the way you want it. Best way is to throw a very small bit of fresh powder on it, that the perfect way to smooth the canvas. You it will fill all the holes and problem areas. Get it nice and smooth and let it sit over night. In the morning you'll have a nice solid jump.
If you don't freeze it itll still be solid. but it wyou freeze it itll def hold up for a while.
If you freeze it or it freezes on it's own at some point, you can take some fresh snow, rake it across the surface and back it down. Especially in a backyard without a ton of people hitting it. it should hold up fine.
I actually LOLed which is rare unless I see something involving goofy looking animals or people getting hurt.

Everyone has their vice. I have one of the most expensive and elegant real-hair false mustache collections in the Western hemisphere.
