Plywood, Fake Snow, and Skyscrapers
If anyone has been to Illinois you know that there isn't much for big or little hills in this state. Despite the lack of vertical ground in Chicago they still have snowboarding competitions here. The other weekend I went with a co-worker to check out a snowboarding competition going on in Grant Park, which is in downtown Chicago. They built a plywood platform, threw on some man made snow, added a few rails and boxes, found some local youngsters, and put on a competition. Here is an idea of what it is like to snowboard in downtown Chi town.
