Bundle up in your brightest mismatching colors and take on the picturesque mountains of Val d'Isère in Skiing and Snowboarding for the Atari Jaguar.
 
As I test the limits of my grasp of the French language (probably with embarrassing results), we learn about the developer, the game modes, obstacles, powerups (yeah, powerups!), music, the various endings, the subtleties of timberline in the French Alps, and some questionable physics.
 
Also included is feedback from Louis, Randal, Derik, Ryan, BTB, and Björn, with submissions from Doctor Clu, Lost Dragon, and Arethius!
