SFTV crew turns skiing into a video game in S7E7, “Super Pillows”

Comments by Shane Dowaliby/

Do you remember Jonny Moseley Mad Trix? What about SkiFree? Or even SSX On Tour? Most skiers will tell you that when it comes to skiing video games, the options are rather limited. And maybe that’s a good thing, as most skiers would rather be out enjoying the fluffy white stuff in person, rather than from the couch. However, there’s certain instances when you just want to sit down, relax, and play some video games.

In this latest episode, the Salomon Freeski TV crew turned skiing into a video game, and while you can’t actually play it, the different (and wacky) perspective is a fun watch. A couple of kids are put in control of skiers Josh Daiek, Chris Rubens, Mike Douglas, Cody Townsend, Henrik Windstedt and Mark Abma. The skiers collect points based on their performances, which include bonuses for faceshots and double lines. Who wins eternal gamer glory? You’ll have to watch to find out.
