Well me and a buddy have been talking about building a ramp for quite a while now, so we finally decided to do it. We checked into making a metal one but it was way to much money so we opted for wood. I got a genral idea for the plans from Team Sledcrew and did some major modifying. It's 7ft. tall, 15ft. long, and 6ft 6in wide. It folds onto itself for ease of tranportation.

Here are a few pics of the finished product.

looks good, but besides covering it in snow, how are you going to pretect it from studs carbids or even track wear?

Yeah we built it for sleds, and no we didn't jump it with a quad we just rode up it to see how it held up. Were not quite done yet, we still need to put a couple old tracks up the middle for traction. I think what were going to do for the carbide issue is just put old ware rods on our skis when we hit it. Thanks for the complements!

It looks good but what about the studs and carbides? Did you take a quad off that ramp? What did that end up like?

but how are you going to stop the sled from going off side ways with no ski controll. they might not stay straight on that slippery wood.

I was watching some sled videos and all they have on the tops of their ramps is plwood. The skis shouldn't be an issue.

Nicely done, put 2 tracks down the middle and you are good to go. Do NOT take your carbides off when you hit the ramp, I tried it and you have no control. It takes alot of hits befor it starts to tear the wood up.

I have an idea, whenever it gets cold pour some water on the ramp and then let it freezes up, then repeat several times and if you got snow put it on as well and pack it down firmly!

Looks good and you will have a blast on it.If you make your landing out of dirt and cover it in woodchips you can practice when ever you want.

We were thinking of that but it sounds kinda hard on the sleds.
Again thanks for the compliments.
