What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

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

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“SNOW will remain in Early Access until it launches fully after the Open Beta period. At that point SNOW will be nearly feature complete with all intended content and gameplay available to the users.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“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.”

I was expecting what I got from this game : a snow themed Skate. The open world is vast and a good addition but could have a little more obsticles (ramps walls and things to grind on). The multiplayer doesn't really work well, the wrold is so big I could only just find people to challenge. Overall this game is good but could do with an additions of naked monkeys in featherred hats and smoking bananas.

Definitely early access. Graphics are decent and the snowboarding is pretty fun when it's smooth. That said, it's not smooth all that often and the whole thing needs some more QA before it's actually fun. But it's got a lot of potential, looking forward to seeing a good game in the genre. I haven't noticed one in a long while.

Me and my friend played this game as a joke.
But it turned into one of the most thrilling adventures of my life.
So we're skiing down the cliffs and ramps having a chuckle at the glitches,
then we eventualy reach a road.
This road leads into town almost completely under the snow.
We keep going, the road gets buried.
So we head to a forest and find a giant snowman, just sitting there in the fog.
I'm convinced this is about the apocolypse
10/10 Would find a blow up doll somewhere in a pit out of the map again.

This is a realistic simulator of what it would look like to be NOT LIVING IN A PLACE WHERE IT NEVER SNOWS.

Pros:
VR Support (eventhough I'm too poor to own one)
Great Graphics (eventhough my computer average)
Snow

Cons:
I don't live near snow :(

Overall a great game, hope there will be htc vive support soon

If you're still here, here's an 8 minute chocolate mousse recipe:
Classic chocolate mousse
Ingredients:
300g dark eating chocolate
30g butter, softened
3 eggs, separated
300ml thickened cream, softly whipped, plus extra to serve
Steps:
1. In a medium heatproof bowl, melt 200g of the chocolate over a medium pan of simmering water (don't let the water touch the bottom of the bowl). Remove bowl from heat. Add butter and stir until smooth. Fold in egg yolks. Transfer chocolate mixture to a large mixing bowl.
2. In a small bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Fold cream into chocolate mixture and then egg whites in two batches.
3. Divide mousse among serving dishes; refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.
4. To make chocolate curls, melt remaining chocolate and spread evenly over a cold surface such as a flat oven tray, or laminated benchtop. Leave to set almost to room temperature. Drag a melon baller or knife evenly across the surface of the chocolate.
5. Serve chocolate mousse with extra whipped cream and chocolate curls.

Game has been ironed out alot and most bugs are gone but some still remain. its a open world winter sports game i have been waiting for since SSX. Ragdolls and animations need the most work.

Pros:
+ F2P
+ Open world
+ Great graphics
+ VR support
+ Snowboarding and Skiing
+ Tons of gear

Cons:
- A Lot of the animations arent too good
- ragdolls are worst then Skate 3
- The bugs that still remain (getting stuck in the ground sometimes after landing!)

I've been playing this game for almost a total of 260 hours now and still have only found one bad thing. The game overall is smooth, has amazing gameplay, and is easily enjoyed by anyone and especially enjoyed by people who ski or snowboard in real life. The only problem I have is the glitch that starts in around 250 hours which doesnt let me play as much because it closes the game randomly. I would reccomend this game to anyone who enjoys skiing and snowboarding and likes winter sports.

I consider this project is the way to earn some money for the composers, whose music plays on the background.
Let's be hones, free game are not THAT good. And the challenging part is pretty annoying due to physics that work a little bit weird. Anyways this game is pretty nice ski/board simulator for someone LIKE ME BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW HOW TO SKI AND THE ONLY MOUNTAIN I HAVE SEEN IN MY LIFE IS THE MOUNTAIN DEW BOTTLE.

My friend Adam and I were going down the Graveyard Pass at a blistering speed. Trees were giving off sonic cracks as we blew past them approaching mach 1 speeds. If we both hadn't bought the Speed Demon Gear DLC our skin would have been ripped off from the extreme speeds. At 1300km/h we activated the main thrusters on our skis, sending us down at speeds faster than any vehicle ever created by man. We both risked snapping our necks clean off by turning to each other and giving a thumbs up. This is what we lived for. Pure speed. Adrenaline. Dancing with death, looking it right in the eye and proclaiming "Not today, ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥! I do the work. I earn the money. I am the one that decides when to have sex. I have the ultimate power, economically AND physically and I will not doubt for a second to use my full adult male force to put you into back in your place. These strong ♥♥♥♥ing arms have killed before, and if pushed I will not hold back. Spouse or not.".
As me and Adam were approaching mach 2 down the mountain, Adam proclaimed he had trouble with his thrusters. I could sense the fear in his voice. Something was wrong. Out of nowhere, his right skis thrusters shot off with full force, ripping his entire right leg off together with the ski. The scream over the radio headset was ear shattering. I tried to focus on staying on track and avoiding crashing into a tree, which would be an instantaneous death, but I had to look.
The sight sent a chill down my spine. My best friend was doing his best to hold his form at 2100 km/h with only one leg. I could see in his visor a single tear rolling down his cheek. He turned his head to me, and raised his right arm in a salute, risking his hand getting torn off from the wind pressure.
The time had come. I nodded.
Adam veered off-track, right into a big pine tree. The red mist of my best friend will be forever imprinted in my memory. The following explosion set off a massive avalanche, the biggest since 2004. The avalanche posed no threat to me due to the sheer speed I was traveling, but the same can not be said for the neighboring ski town of Obersaxen, which was struck by the avalanche and completely submerged by snow. 640 people died. Thankfully our families were not in Obersaxen but in a town 20 or so miles away where I told Adams wife what happened.
Sadly Adam wasn't a winner. A winner wouldn't let his best friend ♥♥♥♥ his wife, but Adam did. Adam did the very moment he became meat smoke. Some people were just born weak.
