So today my buddy David and I made a little ski jump and improvised some snowboards. It almost always ended in crashing! Lot’s of engineering went into all of these activities. Here are some of the highlights.
I have a really awesome old school toboggan that is great for tobogganing, but even better for making a makeshift snowboard. Keep in mind that I have absolutely no idea how to snowboard. What could possibly go wrong…?
One of the more spectacular crashes…
Yes, I’m pretty much flying.
Then we got a little more confident and started staging some tricks.
Then, a stroke of genius hit. Why not make this more of a leisure activity?
I found a truly terrible little snowboard/sled thing that is impossible to control…and perfect for this sort of activity!
Then I figured i’d try it on my skis, which I actually do know how to use…
Not a bad jump…
Not a good landing.
Somehow everything survived that one.
Then for the final trick we made big piles of snow to crash into.
And stick the landing…
