|We Ski & Snowboard is a wintry thrill ride through many different environments on the awesome Mt. Angrio and cool Jamboree Snow Resort. Players enjoy the classic motion-based controls popularized by We Ski using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers, or by adding the increased realism of the Wii Balance Board for even more ski and snowboard action. Custom characters and player Mii's add even more dimension to snow-capped adventures across even more mountain terrain than ever with vast free-riding areas. Leisurely gondola rides to sloping peaks invite a breathtaking panoramic experience, while heli-drops from extreme dizzying heights offer-up opportunities to shred down vertical cliffs and severe precipices. Players should be sure to watch out for avalanches!|
We Ski and Snowboard for the Wii Review

|The Wii's library is known for it's selection of crap and shovelware. It's the cheapest console with the largest install base, so of course it's going to attract a wide range of products. I'm not against these bad, cheap games being released; however, I am against them flooding out the market and masking the really great games. Take, for instance, We Ski and Snowboard. At first glace, this game looks like it belongs in the bargain bin. Hell, the name alone makes it sound like a cheap rip on the name "Wii." But look closer, and you'll find something that's really fantastic. ...read the full review|
Customer Reviews of We Ski and Snowboard (works with Wii Balance Board)
This is by far the best game I have ever gotten! Even my husband, who is not into video games at all, loves this game! The graphics are great, there are many different competitions, two different mountains to explore, one to access the trails by helicopter, and the other mountain by lifts. You can ride in the helicopters and the lifts, pick up different people along the way, including other family members, etc. This game is a lot of fun! I highly recommend this!
I really like the integration with the balance board, it is very sensitive and doing tricks using both the board and the remote and nunchuck adds a lot of possibilities. Some of the challenges are super hard, so there's a lot to keep the game interesting, although you can also just cruise around if you want to. Overall, a really fun game!
This game works well with the Wii balance board. It mimics your movements very accurately. There are a lot of differnt options during play so you are never bored. Skii school is great for learning new moves although if you're not accurate it will let you pass on to the next one on occasion. I REALLY enjoy it given I live in the valley of the sun :)
