Similar to the wheelbarrow race on the turf, one kid represents the cart, while the other one takes him by his legs and pushes him along. The hands of the kid, which is the cart are rested on a bike tube. This will make it possible, that the whole thing can be pushed ahead.

For safety reasons, this game should be played in a flat area. Make sure you never play it on a slope.

Game 2: Tire tube - Stagecoach Race

Attach a 5-m long cable to a tire tube. Now, 1 or 2 kids sit on the tube, while 2 more kids tow them along.

Before the game begins, make sure you mark the track for the Stagecoach Race. This could be straight, with obstacles or implemented bends. The fastest team wins the race.

Game 3: Snowboards race

Depending on how much snowboards are available, you can create an individual or a team race. As soon as the everybody is strapped into their snowboards, the game can get underway. The fastest snowboarder wins. Ideal but at the same time a bit harder is racing in deep snow. There the snow shoes and -boards are really come to use.
