Family Ski is the latest release from Nintendo that makes full use of the Wii Board peripheral. Take the Nunchuck and Remote in your hands and step on the Wii Board to really take advantage.
Welcome to the Happy Ski Resort, where fresh powder, groomed runs, multiple trails, and state of the art facilities await! Family Ski takes you down the slopes in the most exciting skiing game to hit the Wii! Grab your Wii Remote and Nunchuk or step onto your Wii Board to execute perfect wedge stops, shred the slaloms, and negotiate moguls with ease. With an in-depth Ski School and over a dozen lengthy runs packed with jumps, races, and more, you and your friends wont want to leave the slopes again!
Family Ski is a relaxed winter sports game and uses the motion controllers to let players Ski. The Wii Remote and Nunchuck simulate the Ski Poles, used to accelerate and move off from a stationary point and turn in a specific direction.
When these are used in collaboration with the Wii Fit peripheral, the Wii board, players can be further immersed into a unique experience of skiing. The Wii Board takes over to allow the player to turn whilst skiing by measuring the swaying and leaning of the body.
Hit the slopes and enjoy life in a winter wonderland with Family Ski. The hills and mountains of Happy Ski Resort are the perfect place to hang out, relax and take in the sights or compete in a variety of fun challenges.
Using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk as your ski poles, you're free to roam throughout the resort, exploring every twist and turn of more than a dozen different ski runs. You could also step onto the Wii Balance Board and navigate your way down the piste by leaning from left to right and using your poles to build up speed.
As you explore the resort, you'll bump into all sorts of friendly characters, some of whom might invite you to complete in special challenges such as racing or helping to find a missing skier. Each time you complete these challenges you'll earn stars that unlock new in-game features.
You can also choose to clip on your skis and compete in a variety of high-speed races or brush up on skiing techniques in Ski School. Whatever you're doing in Happy Ski Resort, you'll want to look the part. You can play as your Mii or choose one of 32 skiers, then customise every detail of their appearance. Having your own style is especially helpful when you play Family Ski in multiplayer mode.
With so much to see and do, Family Ski is a mountain of fun, and luckily, the snow sticks around all-year long.
