Fun RaceSome ideas.
Form teams ie 2 teachers 2 student on same team. Piece of long rope put knots in rope and ea. team member has to hang on to rope. Set up course where the Team has go around 360 degrees something (guy on end can be a whip), then over something (spook works great if you can get out and put a ramp on it), limbo pole and then at the finish. first 3 members of the team havde to take their skis off and go through an inner tube head lst and last team member has to go through inner tube with skis on (other 3 team member can help him). Team prep: smallest guy with the shortest skis last. Use a good sized tube. Anyone let go of rope or hose or whatever you use, 5 sec. penalty. Etc Etc.
Another one we usedd to do: GS at Top, Slalom in Middle, SG at bottom. 4 person teams. One guy takes off on top (wearing a cape that is velcroed to neck/chest whatever/teeth) at the transition between 1/3 way down a tream member awaits in a squared off area (can use bamboo poles etc.) Relay/hand off cape. He skis to next stopping area and cape get relayed again. This can be a lot of fun to watch, some of the cape exchanges were pretty cool.
