About the Game:

Your journey starts at the charming Hirschalm ski resort, nestled in the heart of the Alps. Strap on your skis or snowboard and head to the lift while picking up the basics like turning and jumping. After taking the lift up to Almhütte you get to try your first slalom challenge.

Completing challenges earns you Ski Passes, which unlock ski lifts that take you to new parts of the mountain.

As you advance, you’ll need to tackle a variety of challenges, like slalom, slopestyle, ski cross, and big air.

Simply perfect carving turns won’t cut it – you must also practice tricks, rails, and drops to conquer the challenging courses.

Don’t forget to head into the backcountry areas to discover hidden challenges and secret Ski Passes.

But be careful – outside the groomed runs, there are bears, wolves, avalanches, falling trees, and other hazards waiting for you!

Grand Mountain Adventure + is a single player game for ages 9 and up. It has gamepad support.
