  • Summary: (Also known as "Family Ski") Step onto your Wii Balance Board or grab your Wii Remote and Nunchuk and hit the fresh powder with We Ski. Up to four skiers can experience the sweetest mountain runs in the comfort of their homes as We Ski’s highly responsive and intuitive controls take them down the slopes like never before. In We Ski, up to four skiers can test their skills on more than a dozen runs from the bunny slopes to the most challenging Black Diamonds. Not only can players carve through the trails using the motion-based controls but they can also mix in the Wii Balance Board for a whole new level of realism. Players can ski using their own Mii or create a new character with a host of customizable options including changeable face and body types. Boosting the customization feature, additional skis, poles, goggles, and costumes can be unlocked. We Ski features an entire mountain to explore, complete with a ski school, freestyle skiing, moguls and slaloms, photography, and a variety of other events. Players can even try their hand at night skiing while enjoying the spectrum of fireworks that color the sky. With We Ski no more long drives to the snow will be necessary to enjoy a day of shredding the mountains. [Namco Bandai Games] Collapse

    We Ski offers an absurd amount of events, objectives, and extras -- and it's all icing on the mountain, as this would be a great game without most of it. The comfortable motion controls ensure that even a simple, leisurely ski around the resort is usually a joy.
  2. Not worth the board for, but a bit of diverting fun for those tired of "Wii Fit." [Aug 2008, p.79]
  3. A gentle, accessible alternative to "SSX Blur." It won't set your world on fire, but hte Happy Ski resort is well worth a visit. [Issue #24, p.64]
  4. Family Ski comes highly recommended – even if only to soothe the pain of yet another blue-shell-related defeat. [May 2008, p.118]

    We Ski put itself in a great position for the launch of Wii Fit, but it’s unfortunate that the core game doesn’t support the well-executed balance board integration with stronger core gameplay.
  6. It's worth buying if you can find it at a bargain price, and works as a decent alternative to Wii Fit for balance board owners. Just don't expect too much.
  7. What looks like an open world, is in fact a closed snowfield that only gives you the illusion of freedom.
