GAME MODES

There are three modes of game play: Training, Freeride, and Compete. You select your game mode in the Options Screen.

TRAINING MODE

The Training mode is recommended for beginners, for it allows you to practice your skiing and snowboarding. This option is available in one or two player mode for all compete modes. The Training Mode prepares you for real competition by sharpening your frelexes in three timed events: slalom, giant slalom, and downhill race. Before you begin an event, a map is displayed givin gyou access to four slopes of increasing difficulty. They are indicated by four stars which you select by pressing the RIGHT/LEFT arrows of your joypad. THen press A, B or C Button to select.

You are then in the starting position: the red lights come on, turn orange, and when you get to the green lights, the stop-watch begins counting the seconds. You have to negotiate the slope in the minimum possible time without missing nay of the gamtes on the way down. Be careful, the is a penalty of two seconds of every game you miss!

FREERIDE MODE

The Freeride mode is a non-competitive event in which you must reach the designated checkpoints before the clock runs out. Here you can ski with total freedom... well, almost... each run in Freeride mode gets progressively harder as the hazards around you increase: rocks, stumps, snow machines, black ice, etc.. If you select this mode, a map is displayed showing the START and FINISH points. There are several possible paths to the finish line, but be careful, for the shortest route is not necessarily the best one! The black lines on the map indicate the ski-lifts. Choose your ski-lifts carefully, for some slopes are more difficult than others.

When you begin your trial, you are giving a limited amount of seconds in which to reach a CHECKPOINT. If you pass the checkpoint before you time runs out, you are awarded more time and you negotiate the next slope. Once you arrive at the bottom of your run, a ski-lift will take you to the top of another slope.

COMPETE MODE

The Compete mode consists of four Championships (CHALLENGE), each of which is divided into three times events (RACE). In the first race of the challenges, you must place in the top 7 to qualify for the next race. In the second race of the challenges, you must place in the top 5 to qualify for the next race. In the third (and last!) race of the challenges, you must place in the top 3 to qualify for an award and go to the next challenge or the final. You will reach the final when you have completed the four challenges.

The number of the challenge, the number of the race, and the best time for this slope will be displayed at the beginning of each race. At the end of each race, a board gives you the list of the 8 best players in the temporary classification. The times displayed in red are those competitors who have been disqualified. You must complete the race at a better time than these in order to qualify for the following CHALLENGE.

Be careful! You only have three chances in which to qualify. After that, the game is over and you have to start at the beginning of the game. Each time you succeed at one of the four CHALLENGES, you win an award. Once all four CHALLENGES are completed, you move on to the FINALS.
