In this video, our author, Jimmy Jacobs, shows us how to build a quarter pipe. He shows use many ways to grip the shovel to form our quarter pipe such as ‚Äúthe granny‚Äù or the ‚Äúrailroad‚Äù. Please make sure your shovel has a sharp tip, otherwise this will be difficult. From here, just repeatedly hit your pile of snow with the sharp tip of your shovel to smooth out the surface. It is important to note that you it helpful to build your pile first, instead of trying to smooth the snow before all of it has been piled, because, as our author mentions, gravity is your friend.
Once you have smoothed the surface to your satisfaction, you know have a usable quarter pipe for your perusal.
