This is a freeware Windows™ and Linux game written for very simple playability and competition.

It is available as a 32-bit or 64-bit edition for Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8 (if in doubt, download the 32-bit version). It installs and uninstalls as a regular Windows™ application.

- Sept 2014 -
* Linux 64-bit version now available
* Windows update has 3 extra courses

Once installed on your computer just tap the UP arrow once on your keyboard to start playing straight away.

The object is to keep your ski man (the red blob) between the fences (+ and +) for as long as possible using the LEFT and RIGHT arrow keys whilst the course scrolls downwards and gradually gets narrower.
(If by a miracle you manage to reach 1000m, the course gets wider, then narrows gradually again)

That's it! It's a very simple game of skill.
