Description from the packaging.

Take a deep breath, grit your teeth, and go for it! Push off on a run that's so realistic, you'll swear you can feel raw wind stinging your face. Downhill Challenge is the ultimate computer ski experience.

You'll need ice in your veins and reactions as quick as any seasoned champion's. Watch yourself go into a tuck on screen as you swoosh down the mountainside, your flashing skis following every subtle movement of your joystick.

Take your choice of four challenging events (Downhill, Slalom, Giant Slalom, and Jumping), each with separate runs for Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced skiers.

Challenge friends and let the computer time your splits. Or compete against a world-class computer opponent who knows the slope like a native.

Downhill Challenge: It's like having your own private ski mountain!
