The other cool thing about grass is that you can shape it to bind to the snow better. So here, in November, they mow the pistes just before the first snow-fall. This makes the grass blades stick up and hold the snow better - clever huh?
Anyway, so we have a skiable slope in our back garden and last year, when i tried to ski it, i kept getting down to the bare grass as the snow slipped off the horizontal grass - not cool. So this year, i decided to learn from the pisteurs and also mow mine... Hence, extreme lawn-mowing:

Now all i need is the snow to cover it (of which there's about 1cm right now).
