There is no business sign identifying the North Cascades Nursery along U.S. 2 near Sultan, Wash. But you can’t miss the place — it’s surrounded by a fence made of used snow skis. The Stevens Pass ski area is about a half hour drive east in the Cascades.
Three years ago, owner Jake Sharpe posted a sign asking passersby to leave their old skis.
Now, hundreds of them stand side-by-side to form the unusual fence, which is expanding all the time. When it finally circles the business, Sharpe plans to contact Guinness Book of World Records to request the “World’s largest ski fence” title.
The fence is mostly skis, but there are some snowboards, too — some with boots still attached.
There is plenty of room out front to park your RV for a quick stop to look at plants or snap a photo of the most unusual fence.
