I have got my down ramp and box ready to go.

But my friends and I hate going all the way up to the rink to pick up the snow...so is there any type of material that could slide us well enough to hit the rail?

You could try an astroturf like substance. I've ridden down it before and it's really slick. You can't steer very well either. Just spray it down with soapy water.

There is real stuff made but I don't know if you can get it
