I am a big fan of indoor ramps for one reason, there is a roof overhead. Living in Montana, this has gotten me through many of a winter doldrums. Garage ramps are also great for a range of skill levels because they are typically restricted by ceiling height.

Currently the ramp resides in the back of my garage, while still allowing us room to park our cars in the front. The left side deck is the same height as my work bench and acts as an extension for long materials. The right side is deep enough to store a wheelbarrow and push mower during the winter. I can say at this point that it has not been a burden, it has forced me to be highly organized with the rest of the garage. I often tell curious neighbors, "I am not a golfer and it is great exercise." I do prefer skating on concrete, but once again it is an issue of permanence.
