Tilling the Field

Goal:  Cover a designated area with ski impressions. 

Players:  Any number based on area and number of available cones.  No poles. 

Equipment: Large, flat Stadium.  2 cones/person. 

Setup:  Spread cones evenly across the stadium on both sides, cones on one end align with the other end.    

Rules:  Singles or pairs of skiers herringbone down and back until the entire area is covered with tracks looking like a huge tractor tire.  

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.
