It’s all about coming to play the game !

Build your team and come play to win!



  1. This is really a neat idea to make competition fun for all levels!

    The only suggestion for improvement would be to have a secondary challenge where each team’s member scores are averaged into a Team Average. That way a team of 2 or 3 is able to compete against a team of 10. Making the team size into a scoring factor means that the top 2-3 biggest teams could ensure a win simply by joining into one team.

    Another note, have the “ski under your average score” be 0 pts. Thus, you could gather a team of 30 skiers, but only get points for the ones who ski at or above average.

    Setting up new competitions is fun, but challenging. If initial rules turn out to have a biased result, the interest will eventually fade. Thus, more level the playing ground, the more challenging the competition and the more exciting the outcome due to uncertainty of winning.

    • Todd – Thanks for the feedback! Love it! Yes, I think next years challenge will evolve from our experience this year and the suggestions we get from the participating natives!!! We wanted to keep it simple and successful the first year. The tribe leaders have certainly proved to be competitive thus far and are recruiting from neighboring tribes heavily!!! Will you and the family be participating or attending? We would enjoy having you here for the fun and support.
