Just got this for my bday a few days ago and I'm having a great time with it! Can't wait to get the bal board.
At one point, I found myself in a tunnel which was really neat, but I can't find it again. Was I imagining it???
It keeps telling me to ski faster, but the only way to do that is not make many turns, and then it'll suggest making more turns! Is there some happy medium which will improve my rating?
I raced the level 3 "slalom" (which is not slalom at all but more like downhill) and I'm having a devil of a time getting through the close-spaced gates near the end. Any hints? Only thing I can see is get the speed down during the preceding right-hand turn.
If I get to a higher rating, will the race courses change?
Any talk of being able to download new ski areas, for variety?
Thanks for advise. I finally stumbled upon the tunnel again over the weekend. Found an interesting and challenging "task" from a ski patrol: rescue 15 people buried in snow within a time limit. So far got as many as 14 with one second left, couldn't get to the 15th. My rating is up to 48 now, I think. Is that good?
BTW, I was a fanatic skier in years past and fairly skilled. I was only happy in the steeps, blue trails were boring. But there's danger in the steeps, regardless of skill. My crash at Crested Butte was rather spectacular, but got lucky and no more than cracked ribs and bruised face (even wearing helmet). But I called it quits for my wife's sake! With Wii I can crash all I want with no ill effects.
