My son and I tried this game extensively with the remotes and using the board and it was a big disappointment. We couldn't find a tutorial on the disc which is plain absurd so we tried to figure it out as we went and were very disappointed. Looking at the avg rating it seems others aren't that happy with Wii's version of White either. We are hopeful other skiing/snowboarding games come out and improve on this dud. Rent it before you buy it that is for sure!!
My family had some fun, but ultimately the controls kept us from an exhilirating experience. Graphics are good, challenges are fun and pace of gameplay is adequate. Still, controlling the board is so artificial that they'd be better off ditching the wii balance board and going with the remote instead.
