Why Early Access?

“Early Access allows SNOW to reach its audience sooner and improve the core game through community feedback.”

“The full version of SNOW will be a more complete experience having player progression, competitive game modes and a fully-featured multiplayer experience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

SNOW is currently in Open Beta. This means that many features are still in development and the game's controls and core gameplay have not been completed.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“SNOW will transition into a fully free-to-play game during the Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“SNOW's community feedback is a key component to SNOW's development. Especially in this early state, understanding what features the community wants in SNOW will shape it's long-term development.”

Leveling up takes Way too long
Stuff is to expensive / you get almost no credits (every 5th level 20 credits, so I need to level 30 levels for the cheapest drone)
The events are too difficult (didn't even get bronze medal for descent, although I was following the ridge in a perfect line)

This game was the gamechanger that made me swap from xbox to PC. I've skied 8 back to back seasons and occasionally coming home to SNOW in between them has helped ease the pain.

Love the constant updates and the fact they're still working super hard on the game.
Surprised it went back to free but super happy to pay for the game and additonal outfits!

Congrats on finally getting JIB-LIFE off the ground ;)

Best thing you can get on steam that offers some reminiscent enjoyment similar to the skate. series. By no means is this game near completed but it is still a very fun single-player and multiplayer game. With the bugs and faults in the game in mind, it is still a fantastic time kill.

It is impossible to not sound thirteen years old when playing or describing this game. There is no hyperbole too grandiose for the genre-blurring open-world ski-sim experience that is SNOW. I rarely review games, but this one moved me to tell you to play it NOW.

I absolutely love this game. This game has alot of potenitial, I don't know why this game is free I personally think it should cost about $10 for it will help future develpoing of the game...

Go to heli pad ,spawn at giants eye , hit the gnarliest cliff in the game !

or hook up with some friends and play some ski or horse or whatever , or just see who can gather points faster etc... there is alot to do in this game you just have to use your imagination ( for now ).

In order to experience the true SNOW experiance and not crashing every 2 minutes you need to add this game that you can bust your balls on the railing because inorder to bust your balls is getting the true ski experiance as long you can bust you balls

I have played several hundred hours of Skate 3, and I must say, that this game is just as entertaining and fun. A huge plus is that the game is free, and you can play with your friends.
There is bugs, and the game can be kinda frustrating, but it does not stop me from playing!
8/10, can't wait to play the game when it is out of beta!

Recommended for Windows.

NOT recommended for Linux/SteamOS (as of 15/04/2016). Crashes, resolution issues, general unhappiness. Streaming from Windows to SteamOS is fine though.

Pros:
+ Doesn't appear to be pay-to-win (yet)
+ Snowboarding and Snowmobile patches coming soon
+ Fun to play, relaxing music (limited songs though)
+ Leveling, steam achievements, steam cloud
+ Keyboard and controller (xbox 360 tested) both work well, though controller preferred

Cons:
- Ragdoll physics are funny to watch but are competely bonkers
- No ragdoll in multiplayer (insta-tombstone)
- Limited music
- No local co-op/multiplayer on the same PC (this would be great feature imho)
- Fear of a pay-to-win, pay-to-play model in the future. I'd love the devs to state something regarding this

This game was really cool, but I think the update has kind of ruined it. The gameplay was excellent before; easy to control and casual. Now since the update there are so many more complicated buttons and I can't even gain any speed when I have to spam w and then hold left shift for tucking, turning, and a bunch of other things. It just kinda ruined the fast paced casual skiing fun and replaced it with some complicated too realistic simulator.

What to do in the game, Snow.

1) Go to summit
2) Gain a lot of speed
3) Smash into something
4) Watch the high amount of flailing if done right
5) Repeat

This is my review of SNOW, an Early Access game about skis.
The game is very hard to review without being picky, it's good and bad.

The button help was for Xbox one and I used an Logitech Multi Mode controller, That was not really an issue.
Pros:
-The game was fun and was very in depth,
-Even with regular physics fails the game ran perfectly smooth for such a big game,
-Very calming,
-Music was playing to fill in the lack of sound,
-Drone mode, a great way to scout out the area before you ski.

Cons:
-Multiplayer was slow and clunky,
-You have to unlock areas in the free roam meaning it wasnt really free roam,
-The controller binds were dumb, Why would you bind X to go forward and not a trigger?
-No music controls, I can't change to a different song on the fly,
-Graphics settings are low by default, I had to do alot of tweaking to make it run,
-No walk mode, I can't take in my surroundings while I am slipping around can I?

Overall, I would recommend this game but not until loads of errors are ironed out of the game.
