    Post Up Your Fat Bike Snow Jumps and Pump Tracks

    I've been on the Fat Bike Air and Action Shots in Tech Terrain thread quite a bit and have done numerous searches on-line, but haven't found much (other than a couple of videos from various bike brands) with people actually building snow jumps or pump tracks in the snow for their bikes. We're going to get a warm-up (finally) in the northeast and I'm hoping to build a few jumps. Has anyone done this? Post those pics!

    We've made our back yard into a mtb/fat bike playground. I'll post a few shots and videos later.
    We haven't put in jumps yet, but I think that's a great idea. As soon as my son's BB game is over I'm going to work on one

    Unfortunately snow depth in my neck of the woods is still a bit prohibitive, but we're in track for getting some upper 30's and mid-40's by next week, so hopefully I'll be able to get something going then. I'm surprised no one else has done this or posted pics yet. I want some inspiration

    We have some nice trails in our backyard that we've kept groomed.

    Every time I try riding in my yard, my collie thinks it's his job to chase me down and nip my legs. I have to take him to the woods where I have room to stay out in front of him.
    I like turtles

    Finally had a chance to get out and play on a local sledding hill. My tires left no more of an impression than sleds did, and far less than boots. The hill was nicely packed, unlike the snow just off to the sides. I had fun building a small kicker and playing around on the hill for a couple of hours. Lots of possibilities there Sometimes working a weekend has its benefits when it means you have the hill to yourself.

    Sweet! Must be nice to be able to do that right in your backyard. I tried out the same spot yesterday but the warm temperatures made riding on the slope pretty much impossible. Amazing what a difference a day can make in conditions.

    A few from last weekend. We built a kicker, but daftly, there was a fallen tree in the way and it was hard to get much speed:

    Those are awesome! We still have snow in upstate, NY and with temps in the low 20s, conditions were fabulous! Had my first experience riding on top of a frozen crust and hit up the sledding hill for some fun. Didn't get the altitude you and Drevil have been getting, but it was fun, none-the-less
