Skiing is a single player game in which the player uses a joystick to control the direction and speed of a stationary skier on the top of the screen, while the background scrolling graph upwards, thus creating the illusion of a skier moves. The player has to avoid obstacles such as trees and tussocks. Game cartridge has been programmed with five variations of each of the two main games. In remote mode, the player's goal is to reach the bottom of the ski slopes as soon as possible while timer recording its relative success. In the slalom mode, the player must accurately reach the end of the course as fast as he can, but must at the same time to go through a number of gates (indicated by a pair of closely spaced flagpoles). Each gate is considered missed a penalty on the player's time.
