For your peace of mind, please always carry with you an outdoor safety kit when going mountain biking.
People are ordinarily incognizant of how may muscles you use when riding a mountain bike, and how quickly you may burn calories off riding a bike as it may be an exceedingly good work out for the body.
If you plan on riding cross-country along dissimilar styles of trails, riding a bike may be rather a task. So if you riding over a vast distance up and down hills, along slippery single trail it may be very exhausting on the legs and the lower back.
So if you are just starting to ride bikes for the basi time, please don’t just jump on the bike a go for a 20 mile ride as it may do you more hurt than good. One thing that is commended is to do short rides to begin with, possibly only a couple of miles which will take no time at all on a bike to get your fitness training up to scratch before hitting the bike ride.

I’m writing this as a rebuttal to the first review that complains of various issues. I really hate when someone has unrealistic expectations for a “game”.
I own this and played it with my family over the Christmas holiday. I had one uncle that seemed to have the same expectations of the first reviewer and was disappointed that it was not more like “real” skiing. Well, considering they were standing in my mother’s family room; they had not driven a few hours North of where I am to get to Tahoe, there was no snow, they were not in a ski suit and had no skis on their feet … I’d say it was a reasonably good facsimile of the experience. It irritates me when people don’t understand the concept of “pretend”.
I won’t bore you with what all that the game offers, you can easily look that up, what I will tell you is that it’s fun and everyone but the wannabe ski critic enjoyed it. It’s pretty basic, but does make good use of the balance board. There is a learning curve to shifting your weight left and right, as the tendency is to turn your upper body and/or lean; neither of which will make you turn. Once you get that down it’s just a matter of practice, practice, practice and trying to improve your last time. The downhill skiing, snowboarding and the bobsledding is the funnest. The bobsledding was actually a lot of fun to sit on the board and rock left and right trying to find the fastest line down the mountain. Everything works as it should and if you want something fun that will give you a simulated ski experience, has multiple game play options and you can actually burn a calorie or 2 in the process, then I say pick this one up and have some fun. If you are expecting to get a true ski experience in your living room … I believe there is medication for that!

Lots of winter fun
By M. Konkol
This game is one of the best winter sport games on the market. The curling is hard to master but is by far the least exciting game included. Bobsledding is lifelike as you have to try to remain in the groove on the course. Sledding and tubing are fun and the skiing and snow boarding are challenging. I love that it uses the balance board for control on everything but curling.

This isn’t a bad little game to add variety to what you can do with your balance board. The skiing is more difficult than what you get in the wii fit games and it takes more practice to get it down. I especially like the tubing and the bobsledding which kind of let you…excercise your bottom, haha. Tell you what – you can actally feel it the next day if you keep at it long enough. I dont know if it was intended for that, but for me it works 😉
The only thing I wish it had was the ability to use your Wii charachter like the Wii fit and sports resort games do. Other than that, I’ve enjoyed this game.
