Val d'Isere Skiing and Snowboarding
-----------------------------------

Mow Snow !
----------

Cut the slopes on some of the steepest mountainsides in SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING,
a wild winter challenge where speed is guaranteed!

Train and compete on the breathtaking slopes of France's world-famous Val 
d'Isere Ski Resort. Race against time and friends in slalom, giant slalom and 
downhill events.

Watch out for trees, snowmobiles and sno-cats as you barrel down windswept 
mountainsides, black ice, and moguls.

So adjust your bindings or wax your board, and plow!

Game Modes
----------

There are three modes of game play: Training, Freeride, and Compete. You select 
your game mode in the Options Screen.


Training Mode
-------------

The Training mode is recommended for beginners, for it allows you to practice 
your skiing and snowboarding. This option is available in one or two player 
mode for all compete modes. The Training mode prepares you for real competition 
by sharpening your reflexes in three timed events: slalom, giant slalom, and 
downhill race. Before you begin an event, a map is displayed giving you access 
to four slopes of increasing difficulty. They are indicated by four stars which 
you select by pressing the RIGHT/LEFT arrows of your Joypad. Then press A, B or 
C Button to select.

You are then in the starting position: the red lights come on, turn orange, and
when you get to the green lights, the stop-watch begins counting the seconds. 
You have to negotiate the slope in the minimum possible time without missing 
any of the gates on the way down. Be careful, there is a penalty of two seconds 
for every gate you miss!


Freeride Mode
-------------

The Freeride mode is a non-competitive event in which you must reach designated 
checkpoints before the clock runs out. Here you can ski with total freedom... 
well, almost... each run in Freeride mode gets progressively harder as the 
hazards around you increase: rocks, stumps, snow machines, black ice, etc. If 
you select this mode, a map is displayed showing the START and FINISH points. 
There are several possible paths to the finish line, but be careful, for the 
shortest route is not necessarily the best one! The black lines on the map 
indicate the ski-lifts. Choose your ski-lifts carefully, for some slopes are 
more difficult than others.

When you begin your trial, you are given a limited amount of seconds in which 
to reach a CHECKPOINT. If you pass the checkpoint before your time runs out, 
you are awarded more time and you negotiate the next slope. Once you arrive at 
the bottom of your run, a ski-lift will take you to the top of another slope.


Compete Mode
------------

The Compete mode consists of four Championships (CHALLENGE), each of which is 
divided into three times events (RACE). In the first race of the challenges, 
you must place in the top 7 to qualify for the next race. In the second race of 
the challenges, you must place in the top 5 to qualify for the next race. In 
the third (and last!) race of the challenges, you must place in the top 3 to 
qualify for an award and go to the next challenge or to the final. You will 
reach the final when you have completed the four challenges.

The number of the challenge, the number of the race, and the best time for this 
slope will be displayed at the beginning of each race.

At the end of each race, a board gives you the list of the 8 best players in 
the temporary classification. The times displayed in red are those competitors 
who have been disqualified. You must complete the race at a better time than 
these in order to qualify for the following CHALLENGE.

Be careful! You only have three chances in which to qualify. After that, the 
game is over and you have to start at the beginning of the game.

Each time you succeed at one of the four CHALLENGES, you win an award. Once all 
four CHALLENGES are completed, you move on to the FINALS.
