Default Jump composition

I have a track in my back yard and I am working on making another one at my friend's house. The only problem is that I can't keep my jumps in the same shape for more than 2 weeks. I have packed the dirt to no extent. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to make it more packed. I have some carpet that I was thinking about laying over the jumps so it gets more traction and the rain won't wash the dirt away. Let me know if anyone else has any good tips. Thanks.

the only thing i found that works is if you water and pack it then let it sit for a day then repeat until it is hard then it will be really hard

Thanks man, I'll have to give that a try. I was getting so mad that I would spend 3+ hours making a really nice jump and then it would be worn away after a rain.

Don't know yet, the ground is frozen solid here so I'll have to wait till spring to test it out. I'm going to give it a try though. Thanks.
