Do you know some cool ski party tricks?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Pretty much what the title says, do you guys know some cool tricks that you can do to show off a bit with, or just to have fun while waiting for buddies or perhaps the lift?

I'm thinking something with throwing poles or skis or similar, (I know that you shouldn't throw your skis around, people can get hurt...) or another thing that actually is pretty cool, which many jibbers do: they stand on the tips and poles, just leaning forward... Gotta try that one this year!

So what other tricks do you know, i wanna learn more tricks, since i already master the skiing-part... ;-)

Consuming an entire 40 oz in one chairlift is kind of a local feat of manhood... thats not really as much of a party trick though. Plus I have a feeling drinking and skiing is generally frowned upon.



Butter tricks are pretty easy if your skis are particularly soft or short- lean forward or backward far enough to left your tips/tails off the ground while moving and pivot around the part of the ski on the snow.

Att bara åka skidor är inte vad jag har för erfarenheter av svenska skidåkare.... du måste vara ett undantag!!!

I do a lot of Tip Rolls. They used to be cooler with longer skis, but they're pretty easy to do. Get a little speed going, hockey stop, plant your poles downhill and spin around on your tips, landing backwards. The ladies are always impressed.

Jumping into both bindings and then taking off: used to be one hot trick in the fluo days.

Skiing in boxers is also nice.

Stupid line-up tricks:

1) Place the tip of one ski pole on the top of the basket of the other pole. Balance pole #1 on basket of pole #2 like this: \|

2) After balancing pole on pole basket, launch pole #1 up, and into a flip (or two), and try to get it to land and stick in the snow. You need proper snow consistency for this. Be aware of bystander. Don't want to spear anyone.

3) The binding check: (*caution* - this is risky): Have accomplice #1 stand next to your subject (preferably a light-weight), with skis touching the subject's skis. While you stand next to Subject, push her/him over (accomplice is there to keep the Subject from pushing a ski out to maintain balance - ie. the trip wire). Then, before your Subject can get up, one of you grabs the tips of their skis, the other grabs the tails, and you lift their skis over your heads with the Subject still attached, thereby hanging the Subject by their boots from their skis. Next, shake to make sure the bindings hold properly, and possibly to release any loose change. Then lower the Subject carefully, and run like hell!

4) Slalom Training (I like this one best): Express to your Subject that you have a learned of a new way to get better times in the gates. Dot some imaginary gates in the snow with your pole tip. Then trace the line you would take through the gates. Trace it 4-5 times to memorize the line. Then close your eyes and try to "run the gates" with your eyes closed using the pole. You need to show and explain each of those steps to your Subject. Then, ask them to try the same, being very encouraging. When they get to the point where they are about half way through their first "run" with their eyes closed, slap them forcefully in the forehead yelling "OOhhhhh, he hit a gate!". If they are wearing a helmet, you have the right to smack them even harder!

My dad used to tell about a guy who would walk in and ask the people at the party if they wanted to see how a polar bear urinates. They would, of course, say yes, and he would open his fly and ice cubes (that he had previously put in his pants) would tumble out.

Good trick in the 1950's.

hahah that's hardcore! I don't think I'd want ice that near to my nads.

Do a tip stand. Balance on the ski tips and poles and walk around awhile.

In a hurry ? I don't think you can run, but it's possible to hop..

(Kids, don't try this at home and if you have Markers.....?)

When taking off your skis, do this.

Release the heelpiece of your binding, but keep your toe in the toepiece...with that foot, kick up and behind you. The ski should do a neat 360, upon which you should catch it. Wipe off the logo, and be sure to catch all the swooning girls nearby!

It was fun in the old days when there were more Marker Roto-mats arounnd, if you were behind them in the lift line and with your ski pole, you could release the heel. With a slight push forward then cold go tumbling into the people in front. Pick up his ski and thow it away from the corral.

I had those for many years. Whenever I was in the lift line, as I went to slide out to get on the next chair, I'd have to check my bindings to make sure my skis were going to come with me.
