Description

This skiing game is viewed from behind the player in 3D. There are four different events available – Slalom, Giant Slalom, Downhill and Ski Jump. These can be practiced in Training mode, or taken on in a sequence of 2 of each in Competition mode. You must pass through the pairs of gates and hit the single ones, remain on the course, and avoid trees and spectators. Offences such as these will cause you to accrue penalty points, which will detract from your score. Up to 5 players can attempt these, with their results compared at the end.

Trivia

Eddie Edwards

The UK license was with Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards (real name Michael Edwards), who was a British Olympic ski-jump competitor, whose fame arose from the Calgary Winter Olympics of 1988. He finished last in both the events he entered, and was the reason for a qualifying limit being added for the event immediately afterwards. He was not built for ski-jumping, and was entirely self-funded, and as such his self-effacing personality briefly made him a celebrity.
