How do I do the Ski Challenge?
The Ski challenge is quite a simple dance in comparison to other viral TikTok dance challenges.
Here's how to do the #SkiChallenge:
At the beginning of the song, Thug is heard singing the ad libs "Woo, (Tsunami), Spider, SEX", where TikTok users lightly sway their hands side to side.
The users then begin pretending they're skiing, throwing their arms each side of their body to give the illusion that they're doing the sport, in time to the beat. This happens when Thug says "Yeah,yeah (Woo),Yeah (Woo), yeah (Yeah) Yeah (Yeah), yeah
Yeah (Yeah), yeah (Yeah)" on the track.
For the next couple seconds, users put their own swag and dance on the video, freeestyling moves, until Thug raps "I got these bad ass bi**hes riding 'round this bitch and they all the coldest (Yeah)".
When Thug says "Three", TikTok users hold up the number three with their hands, mimicking a "perfect" emoji sign.
Throughout the rest of the dance, users just add their own swag to the dance.
