Northern Game: Ice-Gliders - Culture
Written By: Elizabeth Barrette (Writer)
The northern game of ice-gliders involves throwing a large game piece across ice or snow, often aiming at a target to score points.
 
 

The northern game of ice-gliders is loosely inspired by the Native American game of snow snakes, and by other types of throwing/sliding winter toys, such as curling or shuffleboard. Similar games appear around the world, wherever winter produces enough ice and snow to slide things on it. A large game piece is thrown underhanded across a smooth expanse of ice or snow. The surface may be flat or sloped slightly downward. Several variations of goals and scoring exist. This is a popular outdoor game during the long northern winters. This type of play emphasizes dexterity and aim, plus craftsmanship among devoted players who make their own gear.
