Backyard Olympics

Our large snow pile and slope have been perfect for sledding. It has been the site of several Olympic competitions. Below Eric and Trevor build a jump to sled off.

Since the big snowstorm 10 days ago the days have been sunny with temperatures in the mid-30s, making for packy snow. These conditions are perfect for making runs and jumps. Below Eric and Trevor pack snow to build a jump.

The backyard olympic events included distance events but a participant favorite was the stunts categories: going over jumps with a leg in the air, falling off the sled and or catching big air. After about an hour the contestants are soaking wet and need to come in the house for refreshment.
