Powderpak and Backyard Snowboard Parks

April 11, 2012 By

Summer is soon to be here, so what are you going to do to snowboard?  Midwesterners have the tendency to hang up their boards and forget about them until winter comes again.  I say forget that.

Check out this little set up I brought over to a friends house to test out.  He had a drop in already built for riding in the winter, so we threw up some powderpak, dug out a 12 foot piece of PVC and got after it.

Using Powderpak to build ParxIf you think it looks a little sketchy, that is fine because it was.  This was only a test.  I would suggest a wider run in and more of a landing.  I would also suggest using a rail that will not move.

Other than that…, I love how simple it can be.  You can put it up and take it down in minutes, and it allows you to Board the Midwest All Day, Everyday.

I know some of you out there  board the summer too.  Post up some pics of your set up and maybe we can encourage more to build year round parks.  Check out my Facebook Page if you like to board.
