I enjoy doing the same with a friends kid who is on the ski team. He just turned 16, but he can carve pretty good on a pair of sticks. We play follow the leader where the leader tries to lose the follower. We're both right about at the same level carving-wise so it doesn't matter who is in lead, but we both get some good practice doing it.
Soft bootin it since winter of 1998 (or sometime close)
Hard bootin it since December 2006.
