Up on a rooftop snowboarding in Wilmington

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — For Wilmington resident Drew Salley this was the perfect party. You could say perfect storm as well.

Salley hosted a rooftop outing with his friends and neighbors on a cold wintry Wednesday in Wilmington. Mother nature was responsible most of the snow. Salley has the ability to make snow in these conditions as well.

“We just had a good time,” Salley said. “We took a couple of pipe fittings, a snowmaker, an air compressor and a compressor washer. That’s it? As easy as that.”

Some roof snow stunts are worthy of a big cheer. Some are not. Things don’t always go as planned.

“We often go to the mountains,” Ryan McInnis said. “For Wilmington this is about as good as it can get. This snow is crispy, but we dig an edge into it. We can build a jump and also do it safely.”

With safe being the key word. These guys don’t let everybody go rooftop, but they did let WWAY’s John Rendleman go down the conventional way.
