Let the games begin! This exciting competition is a great way for you and your cohorts to catch the spirit of the winter season. Enjoy a fun and relaxed afternoon off with your co-workers, or test the intensity level of your office mates in an extreme physical competition… the choice is up to you. Bring your warm clothes and positive attitude, and get ready for some fun…
In the midst of a winter wonderland, groups will have to engage in a selection of activities such as the Snowshoe Shuffle, Nordic Express Tubing Challenge, Ullr Launch, Retro Ski Relay, Biathlon, and many more. Choose from our list of proven challenges or share a few suggestions of your own, we’re more than happy to throw them into the mix.
This adrenaline packed competition is based on a comprehensive point scale, tallied at the end of the entire event and based on completion times, group dynamics, approaches, etc. In order to gain the ultimate prize, teams will have to distribute among themselves responsibilities which are best suited for their members with respect to personal strengths, goals and physical abilities.
– This blood-pumping course meanders up, down, over, and around different obstacles for your snowshoeing pleasure. We’ll spice it up with variety of relays and objectives so that everyone gets to support the cause.
Retro Ski Relay – Team members will don colorfully hip outfits and flashback to the 70’s as they inspire their team to work together and move in unison through a dynamic snow track.
Ullr Launch – Teams will divide and conquer as they attempt to play the ultimate game of pitch and catch. A few individuals will step up to the line with hand held ball launchers, while the rest of the team heads out into the field with snowshoes and prepares to catch as many balls as possible.
Tug O’ War - The all-time classic sport… Two teams, one rope. The first team to cross the line loses. The difference is that this version takes place on snow where traction isn’t exactly a given. This activity tests the physical strength and stamina of your entire team. This activity can be set up in a “tournament” format with single loss elimination.
Downhill Ski Relay - The uphill team members will be skiers and the downhill folks will be snowshoers. Skiers maneuver their way through a simple course and tag a snowshoer who will hike up with the next skier’s equipment. This will be repeated until all team members have completed either 1 uphill or downhill leg.
