Title: Winter Sports

Winter Sports
  • ort played on snow or ice1 informally, it can
    refer to sports played in winter that are also
    played year-round, such as basketball. The main
    winter sports are ice hockey and figure skating,
    sledding events, such as luge, skeleton and
    bobsleigh, skiing (Alpine and Nordic) and
    snowboarding. Other common winter sports include
    skiboarding, monoskiing, skwal and snowmobiling.

  • The freestyle mode plays like a video arcade
    racing game, the training mode allows the player
    to use any course, and the competition mode is
    like the Winter Olympic Games. Controls can be
    modified and the player can either use skis or
  • Conditions can change on the course, which can
    range from dawn, dusk, darkness, afternoon
    conditions, even forcing players to navigate
    through a winter storm. Once the player reaches
    the bottom of the hill in freestyle mode, either
    he or she must use the ski lift in order to climb
    to the top of the next mountain. There are less
    than 70 seconds to get to the next checkpoint.
    The fastest speed that snowboards can go is 66
    miles per hour (106.2 kilometres per hour) on
    hilly terrain and 88 miles per hour (141.6
    kilometres per hour) on flat terrain. These
    factors make them ? as fast as stock cars that
    race in the NASCAR Cup Series. A password allows
    players to continue their saved progress as they
    explore new regions of the mountain and refine
    their skiing or snowboarding skills

Ice hockey
  • Ice hockey (hockey in countries where it is the
    most popular form of hockey) is a team sport
    played on ice, in which skaters use sticks to
    direct a puck into the opposing team's goal. It
    is a fast-paced physical sport. Ice hockey is
    most popular in areas that are sufficiently cold
    for natural reliable seasonal ice cover, such as
    Canada, the Czech Republic, Latvia, the Nordic
    countries (especially Finland and Sweden), United
    States, Russia, Slovakia, Germany, Austria, and
    Switzerland. With the advent of indoor artificial
    ice rinks it has become a year-round pastime in
    these areas. Ice hockey is one of the four major
    North American professional sports. Worldwide the
    National Hockey League (NHL) is the highest level
    for men.

  • Snowboarding is a sport that involves descending
    a slope that is covered with snow on a snowboard
    attached to a rider's feet using a special boot
    set onto mounted binding. The development of
    snowboarding was inspired by skateboarding,
    surfing and skiing. It was developed in the
    U.S.A. in the 1960s and the 1970s and became a
    Winter Olympic Sport in 1998.
