Wilmot Ski School
Figure 1 is another embodiment of a portable terrain park feature, the portable fun box.
The device weighs about 28 pounds and can be carried by an instructor on the chair.
Two bolts that hold together the two riding surface are removed to separate
the two halves for deployment on the snow. (Figure 2) The two sections are connected
using the sockets at the end and the two transport bolts used to secure the socket joint.
The portable fun box is then flipped over and mounted on the snow.
A small amount of snow is placed at the entry. (Figure 4) The arrows on the
device show the direction of travel as there is an entry and exit portion of
the device, due to the beveled edges where the surfaces connect.
Figures 5 and 6 show view of the portable fun box place on a slope of about 5 degrees.
Figures 7 through 11 show views of riders as well as skiers practicing
maneuvers on the portable fun box.
