Season 2 of the leaderboards has begun!

Leaderboard reset
Season 2 of When Ski Lifts Go Wrong leaderboards is underway! We have reset the leaderboards for all campaign levels, giving everyone a fair chance of reaching that number one spot.

Throughout Early Access and following the full launch, we have been listening to your feedback to improve the level designs and balance. We have also eliminated some exploits that allowed players to achieve unrealistic scores. We do not plan to rebalance the game for the foreseeable future, therefore we have made the decision to reset the leaderboards as of today!

This will not affect your saves unless it used an addressed exploit, meaning that you can go in and resubmit your best scores and improve on your already awesome constructions.

Community contribution:
We’re always on the lookout for the best and most creative workshop contributions and replays, and wanted to share with you one that caught our eye:

One Big Mountain - Thank you to Baadrix for your awesome design.

Keep those replays and workshop creations coming, and as always, please leave your comments and feedback below or on the forums!

Happy building,

New Update is Live!

Hi everyone,

Patch 1.0.74 is now available, please update your game!

Thanks again for the bug reports and feedback. We have worked hard to address both and you can see a summary of changes below.

If you have any issues or feedback going forward, please let us know via the forums!

Summary of changes:
  • You can now change the character (skier, biker, etc.) controls in the settings panel
  • The achievement to perform a flip while seated in the chairlift has been fixed
  • The strength of building materials had been slightly increased
  • Gondolas weight has been slightly reduced, and they do not hang as low as before
  • Fixed a bug where lifts, people and scenery were loading in the wrong location
  • Addressed an issue that was causing some players to experience jittery skiers giving the appearance of low FPS
  • Changed the default graphic settings to medium, from very high

We hope you're as excited as unnamed-rider-1774832, *ahem* I mean... Jenny, here

Please follow this link for the full patch notes.

Happy Building and Riding,
Team Hugecalf
