The object of the SKIING games is to successfully negotiate the course in the least amount of time.
Join a polar expediton as you help a spunky penguin explorer speed through ten Antarctic ice stations.

I spent some time on the Virtual Slopes this afternoon. Course conditions where excellent, nice deep base with a couple inches of fresh powder. My best run.

24:51

I am in awe of the under 21 second time Tom's got on Twin Galaxies.

Thanks! The slopes were extra fast that day and a little airplane wax on the skis did the trick. ;) All BS aside, I got really lucky on that run down the slopes.


Played a few games of Skiing and my best so far is 22.23

The random gate placement plays a major role in run times.

My "SKI"hat off to you duncantoml on those incredible Skiing scores!

What's the secret as I did a run straight down without even bothering with the gates and only could do it in 23:21 before the penalty time is added!!!

THIS SCORE DOESN'T COUNT. Just had to ask as I'm ready to bash my head threw a wall. :x

Thanks!

Sounds like it's your start time at the starting beep. Without seeing it, it appears you are losing several seconds here.

That's why you gotta get your system modded by Yurkie WITH the Pause Switch!

Unbelievable score man... guess I'm not gonna worry about a first place finish with this one either! :D

Ok. I am hanging up the skies. I played for about 2 hours straight and finally got.

21:55

I don't think I could EVER get a better time than this, it's damn hard to get under 24 seconds.

Wish I would have got this run on tape for Twingalaxies

Thanks. Luck with awesome gate placement is the main factor in fast runs.
