Snowboarding and Snowmobiling
I think one of the most fun things to do in the winter is snowboarding. Another fun sport to do is snowmobiling. I was just sitting around my house one day just hanging out not doing anything, and it hit me. Why not combine the two and see how well that works out. I told my older about this idea and he was all for it seeing as how he enjoys to snowboard as well. For the rope we used a tow rope because the loop on the end of it was perfect for a handle. Now we had to figure out where we wanted to make a jump. My yard is fairly large with about 6 acres so we had a couple places to choose from. The easiest thing for us to do was use the big mounds of snow created by plowing the driveway. It was the perfect table top that just needed a little fixing up. Once the jump was finally made, I took the first turn in hitting this jump while being pulled by my brother on the snowmobile. The jump looked good on the approach so I kept going at it. Hit it, and landed perfectly on the down slope. It was great, my brother and I could now make jumps on the flattest of grounds. It was also fun because either you would be riding your snowboard or riding the snowmobile, it was like a win - win situation. The only downside to this was that you had to let go of the tow rope before you hit the jump so you couldn’t make a line of jumps. The rope was just too heavy to be jumping with. It was still good practice for doing spins and grabs though. The next step we plan on taking is making jumps on a frozen lake, you could hit jumps going really fast on a lake. The only problem is if you fall, it might be straight onto the ice with no snow in between.
