Ski Race Safety Netting.  Ski Netting Sizes and Prices>>

backSTORY:  Beaver Creek Ski Resort asked if he could help them keep 15,000' (3 miles) of their ski barrier netting out of the landfill.  (NOTE: Their downhill course is called the "Birds of Prey".)  Of course, we said "yes".

repurposedPROJECT:  Because our netting came from the Birds of Prey downhill ski course, this "repurpose" is pretty ironic..."The 12' x 90' barrier netting I got from you is going to keep the owls and hawks out of our chickens." -
