A 140-foot-tall snow ramp, three times taller than the Green Monster, is taking over Fenway Park.

The ramp is for “Polartec Big Air at Fenway,’’ a snowboard and freeskiing competition, which will showcase the skills of big air competitors, including two Olympic Champions, on February 11 and 12.

Fenway Park tweeted a timelapse Wednesday of the transformation from ballpark to action sport park.

Crews not only built the ramp, but also shoveled the park after the weekend’s storm. They are saving the snow and ice to use on the jump.
