Charles Destefano made his own snow machine for a ramp in his backyard so he can take up snowboarding now instead of waiting for November or December for more snow.

“There’s a brass ball valve and then there’s a bunch of spouts that are gonna lead to a sprinkler head. It shoots really, really fine water so when it hits the air, nature does all the rest,” explained Destafano.

“Yes [I’m] obsessed, it’s almost pathetic,” said Destafano.
