Luge 2004... After the heavy equipment rolls off it's
all up to us!
Once the wall base is set we move snow bricks (from the neighbors yard) to build up the top of the walls.
Snow blowing and shaping.
Once the snow blowing is done we have to re-shovel the track and
smooth it again. This takes many steps to build layer on layer. There
are no shortcuts here!
Carving the initial shape
Then lots of back aching smoothing with a saucer
Matt the Hoser
The hose freezes while icing due to the cold. Once
the flow is restricted enough so that the water only
trickles, it's time to bathe the hose again (at -5F
that is about 15 minutes).
