Slalom snow skiing is an Alpine event. Individual competitors (in this case, it's you) ski down the slalom hill course one by one, swerving to the right and left of colored poles called gates. ("Alpine" simply means the ski is connected to the skier's heel, with bindings, not loose as in Nordic cross-country skiiing or ski jumping.)
In case you've never seen this winter sport in action, watch a bit of this slalom skiing video of skier Mikaela Shiffrin crushing the slalom run at Sestriere, Italy.
In a slalom event, points are awarded based on how quickly the skier reaches the finish line at the bottom of the course. If a skiier misses a gate, they are disqualified and the run doesn't count. The same rules apply in this downhill skiing game.
In this ski simulator game, your job is to ski down the slope just like Mikaela Shiffrin. To reach the bottom of the ski slope the fastest, be sure to make quick and short turns at each red and blue gate. As you go around the gate, ski as near to the gate itself as you can get without passing on the wrong side of it.
HOW TO PLAY. Use the right and left arrow keys to control your skier. The game controls the skier's speed automatically. Ski to the right of every red gate and to the left of every blue gate, until you reach the finish line at the bottom of the hill.
This downhill ski game starts out easy. Don't be fooled. In my experience, by the time you reach Level 6 or 7, you will need to concentrate intently and have quick reaction times to not miss any gates.
The game has 12 levels. To reach the higher levels, you have to complete the lower levels first.
When the game begins, select your skier, male or female. The male skier has a red ski suit, and the female's suit is pink. The skier you select does not affect the game play, so feel free to choose either one.
If you ski to the wrong side of a gate, your run stops and you don't get any points for that attempt. Missing a gate is known as jumping the gate.
You will also be disqualified if your skier falls down. This easily can happen if you hit a gate head-on.
No worries if you fail a run. You can repeat the attempt as many times as you wish.
OPTIONS. The settings menu for this game is opened by clicking the gear icon in the upper right corner of the game. There you can pause the game, or mute the game's sound effects or background music.
This ski simulator game has great visuals. You really feel like you are on the mountainside!
