Winter is coming (as every year actually...), time for some skiing!

Enjoy going down the slope, trying to beat your previous track record or freeriding skills!

Grab coins or perform tricks for some extra time bonus - watch out for off track hazards!

Note: there is no end racing line - you **will** lose :] question is how much time will you last?


- Left/Right: control direction

-🅾️(c key): jump (hold to charge)

-❎(x key): restart (if stuck)


  • blue: easy
  • red: moderate, with side tracks. Practice your tricks.
  • black: hard, with side tracks. Tricks or time out!

I made a video on your game (38:55)


neat - always very insightful to see other play and "see" things that are broken (totally missed the "tricks" gameplay, "freeriding" is unclear...)


  • marmotte = groundhog 
  • biquette = cute goat
  • chamois = buff

you are french ?


might very well be 🇫🇷




hehe - not my 1st engine, and see my other games for some more advanced 3d :)

Good game


Hey Fred, would be interested in talking about snow and your other pico8 projects on my podcast?

This game is so fun and chill and I'm so impressed by the pico 3d



really fun!

Wow, this Game makes fun!

Reminds me of Accolade's The Games: Winter Edition. (used to play the hell out of it as a kid)

uhmmmm, snow...


Very good. I really enjoyed playing and racing/sloping down in the snow. Relaxing game :), almost even meditational.

Very nice game. 

The gameplay is good, but what really makes it good is the pixel art, a true artist. The only problem that i see is the dots that are on the snow, i know that is the shadow, but is also very creepy to the eyes, there must be a easy way to make shadows.


sorry about that - pico8 color palette is very limited, I found that dithering to best convey slope variation over snow.

cool game!

How do i start?? I cant tried smashing all my buttons but it doesn't work lol?? i picked my level and i dont know what to press so help me out pls... i like the idea of the game tho!

On a PC keyboard, start is [x] or [c].


graphics is awesome!


Uhh... for some reason it's easier for me to go backwards.

Watch out for trees! 

You just gotta follow the arrow, that all.

i love these graphics!!


Amazing!!! Awesome smooth gameplay! Especially for pico 8

Really good feelings about this game, nice design, well done, more like this one please !

This is awesome. Kudos to you!

This game is AMAZING! The things you can do with Pico-8 always amaze me. Also, in the instructions, I think you mean lose, not loose.

Thanks - typo fixed!


Hahaha "Number of tricks: 1 (meh)" This is awesome!! Love the look and feel of the game. How you slide backwards if you don't have enough speed and how you can jump around or over things is really fun!

you can do better ;)

And thanks!


The styling of this is amazing! The sounds, the controls, and obviously the visuals. I love it.

freds72 keep up your good work! i have no idea if you make these pico-8 games anymore, but i love the ones you have! i would love it if you made more!

Thanks! I do keep making games. I have a day job so time for gamedev is limited. I am posting work in progress on Tweeter.

cool. I do not have any social media (I’m not allowed XD) but I’m wondering, what’s the next project you are working on?

idk i love the psudo-3D look with the pico8 games. I made my raspberry pie 3 into a handheld emulator console and I would love to figure out if I can stick pico 8 games onto it. THE QUEST FOR KNOwLEDGE BEGINS

You can download the game rpi binaries and off you go!

Very nice, but aren't the skis a bit wrong? If I was to turn to the right, I would put my left ski in front, not the right? And to the left side I would put the right ski in front.... Or is it too long ago I went skiing? :)

gives a better sense of ‘slope’ imho - I’ll check (at ski resort atm!!)

I instinctively reacted "this is wrong!", so careful when you're skiing now! :)

Great Game! Fun! :D 

Really cool game, I especially like that your rewarded points for going backwards. it makes it feel like your getting points for thinking outside the box.

try some more :]

This was lots of fun, Thank you :)




Winter is coming

only in the northern hemisphere but ok


well, yeah, geographic bias :/


I'm digging the music!


Made a video


Nice watch! make sure to try out the new version with more rewards for dangerous skiing ;)

Love the art style of this game! Had fun playing it.

Thanks! Not so complex terrain wise - but you can play Tiny Sim, the most advanced flight sim on pico!

Looks great! Needs mobile support. 

you mean without the d-pad on screen?

No, just make it so it supports mobile. Or remove the d pad and replace it with a joystick and button.


I don't know how you guys pull this kind of stuff off, it's awesome though


Great Game !! Thanks


It look good
