Realistic snowboarding and controls made by real snowboarders. 16 huge unique trails let you jump off cliffs, bomb down chutes, and head to the park.
The controls include snowboard carving, skidding, and switching between goofy and regular whenever you want. Jump off 1,000-foot cliffs. Use downhill momentum to go up ramps. Tuck to bomb down the mountain. Explore different paths down the slopes and have fun.
The 1.24 update gives you two ways to control your snowboard. There's the traditional tilt control with touching the screen causing you to stand up and turn faster, and new touch steering controls. If you pick the new controls from the options menu you can drag your thumb around to turn, add a second touch to stand up, or swipe up to start a jump. There's also an option to stand by default and touch to tuck if you preferred the old controls.

Ratings and Reviews
Finally a great snowboarding game!
I have tried a number of snowboarding games that had horrible problems including crazy snowboard (repetitive tracks), adrenaline snowboarding (not enough content), and shaun white snowboarding (lag and crash issues along with a lack of content) and big mountain finally does it correctly. Smooth gameplay, plenty of tracks (that look different enough considering they're all snow),and tight controls. Graphics are good, but the gameplay makes up for it. You can tilt the screen to wherever you are most comfortable and play your own music so the user can have their own unique experience. Personally, I would like the option to tap/flick the screen to jump rather than flick my device, but the current option works well enough. I would also like to see either a character customization option or additional characters added in a future update. All in all, for such a low price, any extreme sports fan should pick this up.
Fun and Exciting
I am neither young nor much of a game player, but this is intuitive. You can enjoy it the first time you try it and from there it is a bit like riding a bicycle, you will get better and better at it, hardly knowing exactly how you are acquiring these skills and while enjoying the jumps and downhill runs.....as if it were real.
I do recommend playing your own favorite music on your iPad or iPod, it will play right through this game automatically once you turn it on.....this game is a joy to play with Beethoven or Mozart, but suit yourself
The price alone gives it a great entertainment value! I've updated this rating as the app is a lot smoother now. Yes, the graphics are rough, but the physics are excellent and the control is very good.
If it had smoother (anti-aliased, higher resolution) graphics then it would cost $5+.
If you want a good snowboarding app which challenges you and costs a buck more than nothing then pick it up.
Challenge friends and check leaderboards and achievements.
