Up to six skiers can compete for best downhill time. Press 1 to 6,
then press ENTER. Each skier is assigned a different color; each skier's
time is shown in his or her color.
SELECT GATE WIDTH
The downhill course is defined by pairs of flags, or "gates," that you
ski through. Select wide gates by pressing 1 (Downhill). Select more
challenging narrow gates by pressing 2 (Slalom.) Select no gates,
allowing you to choose your own path down the mountain, by
pressing 3 (No Flags). After pressing 1, 2, or 3, press ENTER.
Select from 32 built-in courses, each with its own obstacles and
challenges, or choose a new course, designed either by you or by the
computer. Press 1 to 32 to select one of the built-in courses (see
below on previewing courses), press 33 to have the computer design
a new course ("helicopter skiing"), or press 34 to design a new course
yourself. After you make your selection, press ENTER.
PREVIEW BUILT-IN COURSES
You may preview any of the 32 built-in courses before selecting one.
Press 1 to 32, as described above, but before pressing ENTER, press
the DISC. A map appears, with the main characteristic of each course
Green: Clear skiing
Dark Blue: Icy patches
Gray: Moguls (bumps)
Light Blue: Powder (unpacked snow)
Warning: Only the MAIN characteristic is color coded; for example, a
green segment may include a mogul, or a gray segment may include
an icy patch. Also, patches of ground do not appear on the preview!

any KEY to return to the SELECT COURSE SCREEN. Press ENTER to ski
the course; press CLEAR to preview or select another.
Pressing 33 followed by ENTER causes a new course to be created at
random by the computer. This simulates "helicopter skiing" -- the
thrill of a helicopter dropping your ski party at the top of an
uncharted mountain. (For the complete sensation of uncharted
territory, Helicopter Skiing should be selected after the No Flags
option, although you can still select Helicopter Skiing with Downhill
or Slalom gates.) The course is different every time you select this
CREATE YOUR OWN COURSE
Pressing 34 followed by ENTER displays the COURSE EDITOR SCREEN.
String together from 3 to 15 course segments to build a new course.
Press the TOP or BOTTOM of the DISC to display the 28 available
segments, one at a time. Press ENTER to add the displayed segment to
the course; press CLEAR to erase the last-added segment. Press 0

Note: The segments are color-coded by main characteristic as in
PREVIEW BUILT-IN COURSE, above. Each segment may contain other
obstacles that will only show up when you actually ski the course.
Enter the slope, from 1 to 15, for each skier in your party. The higher
the slope, the faster you accelerate down the course. Start with lower
numbers until you have mastered running and jumping. Press ENTER
after selecting the slope for each skier.
A map of the course now appears, color-coded as described in

The left flag changes color for each gate you ski through. A 2-second
penalty is added to your time for each gate you miss. It's okay to
knock over a flag as you go through the gate, but it will slow you
down. It's also okay to pass through a gate from below; if you pass a
gate to the side, turn, ski uphill into the gate then turn and ski back
TERRAIN & OBSTACLES
Learn to recognize the various obstacles. You can jump over some;
some you have to ski around:
Trees--Knock you down when hit.
Flags--Slow you down when hit.
Icy Patches (dark blue lines)--You can't turn on ice.
Powder (light blue dots)--Slows you down.
Moguls (gray bumps)--Knock you down.
Patches of Ground (brown spots)--Knock you down.
BEST TIME WINS
Each skier has 3 chances for the fastest time. Skiers race in order
through Heat 1, 2, then 3. The clock records the time, adding the 2-
second penalty for each missed gate.
The time for each run appears at the finish line. The best time so far
appears at the starting gate. After the third heat, the best time for
each skier is shown. The skier with the lowest time wins. All times
are shown in the color of the skier.
