Goal: Slalom around teammates acting as downhill ski gates.
Players: 5 or more.
Equipment: Downhill slope, wider is better. Classic or skate, no poles.
Setup: All skiers start at top of slope. Teams can race each other if enough space is available.
Rules: Farthest person up slope skis around the group and down the hill, then stops several yards away. The next highest slope skier slalom’s around the main group and the first skier stopping in a downhill ski slalom pattern requiring other skiers to slalom around them. Each skier starts as soon as a skier passes the first slalom human gate. Continue down the hill until the team reaches the bottom.
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank to all of the athletes from the Fondeurs Laurentides cross country ski club for their time and enthusiasm in participating in the creation of these videos, filmed in the Laurentians north of Montreal, Quebec.
