    I've been trying to remember the name of a game I used to play on my original Nintendo. You were a little dude skiing down a mountain, you could jump and turn to dodge streams, trees, and various other obstacles.

    Does anybody know the name of this game?

    I think the game you were thinking of was Heavy Shreddin' . I loved playing this game too when it came out. Oh, the glory days of the good old NES. ;-)

    Alpine Ski?

    I think it was called Alpine, or Alpine Ski, or Alpine Racer. Anyway, it had Alpine in it.

    Yeah, that was a cool game. So simple, so fun. I actually miss many of those old games... they were easy to learn, fun to play, and quick.

    I'm pretty sure there was another game (maybe the Alpine-something that was previously mentioned :confused: )

    I guy at work was talking about these very games the other day, so I pointed him to macmame.org and arcadeabyss.com. If I had all the quarters back I spent on Scramble and Defender, I'd be a millionaire.

    I remember a game on a friend's old windows 95 computer that sounds similar. One question, was there a yeti you had to avoid?

    You're thinking of Slalom, the original skiing game for NES. There were three courses, one of which was Alpine.
