Summary: Does the job. Good value, not to mention the usual standard service from Amazon. If you shop with these you can get Prime delivery which is a real bonus. So I continue to shop with Amazon...I suppose its what you might call a win - win relationship! (And the prices are always competitive for the products I purchase). You cannot beat the reassurance of dealing with a business who will resolve any problems with products - just waiting for one to happen!
Great fun if you like the low pressure free format of a ski resort.

Summary: I bought this after having a loan from a friend. Was supposed to be for my daughter but I loved the gentle pace of moving about a ski resort. I haven't been skiing for 8 years (daughter's fault) and it brought back memories.
Summary: Enjoyed by all the family over the winter holiday but especially by the 4 year old. She loved swerving her body around the poles in the race events and did not even care that she usually lost.
Summary: Haven't used this product yet. I was really looking forward to using this on christmas morning, but couldn't as I didn't have a nunchuck. If only this had been recommended when I bought family ski and balance board. Now I have to wait to January 3rd before I can use it.
Summary: I have the Wii balance board to go with this and it's makes all the differnce, so much fun. The only downside is the lack of places to ski, as so far their seems to be only one mountain with several slopes, rather than different countries and resorts which would have been nice. Other than that though it's very cool as you can ski to your hearts content or try out some racing, so all in all good fun but could be better.
Excerpt: I've got We Ski and can't wait to complete the skiing experience. If you're looking for a game that can be played while lazily lying on the couch, don't get this. To ski, you'll hold both the remote and nunchuk (front edge pointed forward, but they do not have to be pointed toward the screen) and turn by tilting them in unison. Movements are subtle and well done - this is the first time a console game has been able to pull off this kind of physical effect.
