Why Early Access?

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.

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.

Bought this game in early alpha and followed through the developement.
I am extremely disappointed in the developers.
This game had great potential and the idea aswell as parts of the current game are so fun and inspired.
The flipside is gigantic tho. The development has basically stood still for over 2 years. Snowboarding was promised to be finished 1.5 years ago. Sales went great. Less and less effort went into the game. Now that Snowboarding is out it is a buggy mess. After 2 Years. The very little time they invested completely went into milking the financial potential. For an unfinished game with almost all core problems unfixed the prices for micropayments are absolutely beyond ridiculous. I payed 13 bucks to support this game. I used to be able to use all cosmetics. For free. Now i would have to pay roughly 3500$ for that. In a completely unfinished Beta game that will 99.999% never be finished.
Im so sincerely disappointed in Poppermost for taking this game in the completely wrong direction. You guys seemed like genuine people but I guess I was wrong. Or the good sales "changed your minds".
Well, whatever you do, do not get this game, do not support these developers. Core elements still dont work, riding and doing tricks feels awkward if anything and not fun in any way. Stay away!

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.
