Ok so other than nerfing I snowskate, its like snowboarding without the bindings and its a smaller board, so anyway i have two hills set up one with a grinding rail sticking out of it and the other is steeper. I am trying to build a ramp off of the steeper one but i just keep on running right through and watch my work become powdered dust. Does any one know how to make a ramp out of just snow?

I would put some cardboard or plywood to add some rigidity

Just pack it down until its hard enough for you to stand on and spray some water on it, also make sure theres a good ttransition.

One strategy toward building a snow jump that has a 90% success rate is before it snows you put down a jump made out of a heavy and sturdy material. I often use a small wood. make sure to latch it down well. wait for the snow o cover it up, and if you want it to be extra slick you could spray some Luke warm water on it. If it already has snowed you just need to dig out a space to put it in. ride carefully, hope this helps.

Pour water on it and wait overnight, for ice?

Ramprage.com is a good forum for skateboarding, and they have a semi-active snowskate sub-forum. Look that shit up

Compact the snow really thoroughly. Using the shovel, throw down a single shovel load of snow and compact by hitting with the shovel. Then step on it evenly. Don't stomp, just walk on it. Or even better, get a friend. Have one of you shovel snow and the other walk around continuosly. A tiny bit of water may help, but don't use too much or the snow will be soft and mushy until it refreezes

Build the ramp significantly bigger than you want the final jump to be. And for the moment don't worry about shaping it. You will need a lot of snow

Once you have a large, shapeless lump of rock hard snow it is time to shape the ramp. Use a shovel to carve the face of the jump into a beautiful, UNIFORM, curve. If the curve is jerky or sudden, you lose all your speed and will be thrown into the air in weird ways. So make sure you carve from the top down in a perfectly round curve. Leave it over night so it has time to set. This will leave you with a jump that will work perfectly and won't blow away.
