It's you against nature in an adrenaline-soaked race down a mountain gone mad! It's wintertime again, and the snow's never looked this good! Ricky Winterborn and Akari Hayami have rounded up an all-new cast of characters to head back to the slopes for some high-speed competition. Race through realistic natural environments complete with powder drifts, ice patches, and groomed hardpack but don't get comfortable. You'll have to contend with massive avalanches, rockslides, cave-ins, bridge collapses and environments teeming with wildlife and other skiers. Not only that, but you must master a unique character balancing system and a catalog of crazy tricks as you experience the speed rush of big mountain racing. Your slalom skills had better be tuned because you'll be going head-to-head with CPU-controlled masters or up to three human opponents. Get ready to rip!
