I have two small kids who are learning to ski this year. We're about to get a snow storm and have an adequately-sloping yard as such that if the snow was packed and smooth, they could practice some more there on their own.
We're getting ~10 inches of snow tomorrow (not sure what the consistency/moisture of it will be yet).
How can I get the snow packed and smoothed to enable them to ski on it?
I thought of something like a sod roller to pack and smooth, then just rough it up a bit with something, but I don't have a sod roller, so looking for other options.
