The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987):

    SHOOOSH BOOM



    You're edging your skis hard trying to get control as you race down the run and top the mogul in a flash of snow. But you're not out of the woods yet--in fact, you're into the trees and slowing down too much! Will you win the race against the clock or slide in as a has-been? The ticking of the clock and banging of your heart is all that matters.

    GAME PLAY: From the moment you fly out of the starting gate, you have to pull out all the stops in this fast-action game. Ahead lie 24 exhilarating slopes and 21 high-score records to challenge. It's you against the clock on Mount Nasty, Snowy Hill, or Steep Peak. There are plenty of hazards ahead to slow you down--ski gates, other racers, moguls, snowmen, sledders, flags, drone skiers--and more! If you complete a run within time, you get to ski on ahead to the next and more difficult challenge. To ski the fastest, stay on the snow. Make your turns short and sweet. And get as many bonus points as you can with your shoosh booming skills.
