I love this game, it's really good fun and I really like the way there are a number of different types of runs for you to try and master. From beginner slopes to super fast slopes to slopes you have to do jumps and tricks, there are lots of different activities to keep you interested.
I am also pleased that you have to interact using the remote and nunchuk, you don't just sit there pressing buttons you actually have to move (mainly your arms) around to make you player ski.
There are characters you can chose and then you can mold them into an appearance that suits you. Alternatively you can use your wii mii although they cannot wear hats or goggles.
Each slope has a grading system and you have to do a certain number of things on the run to get the higher grade (you are shown your grade at the start of the slope and then again at the end where you have the chance to press the A button to see where you can improve if necessary) The better the grades you get, the more points you will receive which in turn unlock extra items your skier can wear from the ski shop.
The game can utilise the balance board although I don't have one and I have been able to play the game just fine.
I highly recommend this game for people wanting to play alone or with friends and/or family.
