slalom the blue/red flags. A winner's stand with power-ups will
appear at the bottom, by the resort. The second is a ski slope/ramp.
To get to the ramp, you must first drive into the tower at the top
of the hill. Drive down the ramp as fast as possible. Once in the
air, you can do tricks and get points for power-ups at the winner's
stand. The last ski game is the luge, all the way on the left. Run
the luge (with the ski powerup) and hit all the check points.
