I live across the street from a small neighborhood park which is one block below the Western Washington University campus. Because there is a steep hill, the edge of the park by the sidewalk forms a berm up to the walkway, creating a small, somewhat steep, grassy slope. Maybe 5 ft. of vertical.
Each year for the last 3 on Sunday afternoons beginning in the fall someone, probably a WWU student, goes to the mountains and gets a pickup load of snow, brings it to the park, and creates an itty-bitty WROD.
The students bring in a little rail and set up a rail park. It works well with the steel picnic table in the park. There are maybe 7 or so that seem to hang out there, maybe more this year. Today was the first day. So far the "snow" looks pretty pathetic. More like slime.
If the past is any indication this will continue for the next several weeks until Mt. Baker Ski Area opens.
No pictures yet. If the thread is alive I'll try for next week.
It didn't take me a week. Here is the picture of what's left of the WROD with a space for the rail, the picnic table, and my house in the background. The students went home.
