    AUTHOR'S NOTE
    
        First off, it you're going to write me about your "mad skilzz yo!!1" and are
    just bitching about my obvious lack of "skilzz" I'll shuffle your mail to the 
    trash. I've replied to too many idiots. Don't be one that I don't reply to. I do
    this for free. If you have a beef, buy the official guide. If you want to bitch
    about me telling you to spend money...then welcome to my trash folder.
    
        Now that that's done.
    
        Okay, I have played this game to death to write this and the other level
    walkthroughs. In fact, I played it so much that I began to not enjoy it. I
    wanted to make sure that the first couple of levels I had written were put into
    action since I know that I'm not going to finish writing the rest of the
    levels. I don't even want to play the game anymore.
        So, before you you write me and ask how to do different things on the later
    levels, don't. I'm only covering these levels and will not entertain e-mail
    about the others:
      - Donner Ski Ranch
      - Aspen
      - Kirkwood
      - Heavenly
      - Snowbird

    REVISION HISTORY
    
      1.0 (12/29/2001)
          First version of this guide. I was hoping it would be the last one until
          I got a lot of hate mail because I started the gap list after getting
          sick of the game.
      1.1 (3/01/2002)
          Stripped the gap list due to idiots e-mailing me. Added information to the
          author's note.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This section will take you through the level challenges with an in-depth
    description of how to finish the different challenges.
    
    --[ Boarder Score ]------------------------------------------------------------
      Manual to the jump, then pull off a flip and two grabs on the way down. Land
      with a manual and ride it to the tree. slide up the tree, to the line, manual
      on the roof and flip or hold over the jump. Land it.
    
    --[ Pro Score ]----------------------------------------------------------------
      Manual to the jump, then pull off a flip and two grabs on the way down. Land
      with a manual and ride it to the tree. slide up the tree, to the line, manual
      on the roof and flip or hold over the jump. Land in a manual and grind up the
      tree. Jump to a manual and grind the tree on your left. It should transfer
      you to the gondola line. Grind and trick along the line (holds are best). If
      you're feeling a little lucky, drop down from the end into a manual and
      continue grinding. You should have the Pro Score and only be a little bit
      away from a sick score after doing this run once (that is if you haven't
      gotten the sick score, yet).
    
    --[ Sick Score ]---------------------------------------------------------------
      Manual to the jump, then pull off a flip and two grabs on the way down. Land
      with a manual and ride it to the tree. slide up the tree, to the line, manual
      on the roof and flip or hold over the jump. Land in a manual and grind up the
      tree. Jump to a manual and grind the tree on your left. It should transfer
      you to the gondola line. Grind and trick along the line (holds are best). If
      you're feeling a little lucky, drop down from the end into a manual and
      continue grinding. If you need to, you can always hit the snowmobile and do
      it again.
    
    --[ Finish before 1:25 with 30,000 pts ]---------------------------------------
      Manual to the jump, then pull off a flip and two grabs on the way down. Land
      with a manual and ride it to the tree. slide up the tree, to the line, manual
      on the roof and flip or hold over the jump. Land it and book it to the bottom
      of the hill.
    
    --[ Collect the Aspen logos ]--------------------------------------------------
      Start down the hill as usual and take the jump. Instead of grinding the tree
      and the wire, head up the left ledge, instead. You'll see a large drift of
      snow. Use it to jump over to the top of the lodge. Now, grind the awning to
      get the first logo.
    
      Continue down the slope normally until you reach the mid-level house packed
      in snow. Ride up the wire and get the logo. Keep going.
    
      Head for the yuppie's house on the right. At the end of the deck, grind the
      pipe down to the water tower to get the third logo.
    
      Continue down the slope regularly and hit the jump at the end of the sled
      run. Grind the wire to the junction. Make sure you get on the left wire to
      get the logo.
    
    --[ Find the secret sponsor ]--------------------------------------------------
      At the first yuppie's house, get on the upper deck and slide the edge near
      the house. When you land, take the jump and slide the wire. Lean to the right
      at the edge. Balance to the end.
    
      NOTE: You have to lean to the right to make sure that your boarder goes on
            the appropriate line. Otherwise they will just fall off without the
            sponsor.
    
    --[ Demolish the coffee stands ]-----------------------------------------------
      Ride down the hill and take the jump. Grind the logs on the left side of the
      lodge and they'll lead you to the first coffee machine to break.
    
      Now, take the path right in front of you. Go past the yuppie's house to the
      chairlift. It's on the right side of the lift. Smash it and continue.
    
      Go down the hill until about the mid-point, where the snow-covered house is
      located. Take the left path and break the coffee machine there.
    
      Head to the right and you'll see the big house (and a yuppie who likes to
      cheer you on). Head up onto his deck and break his machine.
    
      Grind down to the water tower and off onto the lift line. Transfer to the
      left wire and ride it over the mountain jump off near the lodge. The last
      coffee machine is on the far left side of the lodge.
    
    --[ Bonk the gondola ]---------------------------------------------------------
      At the beginning of the run, head down the mountain and through the lift
      lodge's window. Go through the lodge and up the tree. slide the left tree and
      transfer to the wire. Jump off and bonk the gondola.
    
      Alternatively, you can manual down the mountain, trick off the jump, grind
      the tree and transfer to the wire. Manual to the jump and jump off the left
      side of it and grind the gondola line. When you see the gondola, jump off and
      bonk it. You'll get a rather nice score as well. Thanks to the players at the
      Shaun Palmer Pro Snowboarder message board at www.gamefaqs.com for the second
      one. I suck and have trouble doing it, but they thought it was much easier
      than my way.
    
    --[ Show the yuppies the bottom of your board ]--------------------------------
      After the jump at the beginning of the level, take a hard right. See the
      house there? Go up the lower deck and use the stairs to launch you over the
      first yuppie.
    
      Stay to the right until you see two quarter-pipes. Go directly down the
      middle of them and use the snow bank to launch yourself over the yuppies'
      head.
    
      Continue down the hill and take the snowmobile. Yes, I know that there's a
      yuppie just waiting to be jumped, but trust me. This time, take a left at the
      lodge after the jump and head around it. Go through the left track to find
      the next yuppie just waiting for you to jump him. Ride up his steps and
      launch right over his head.
    
      Now, continue back down the hill to where you got on the snowmobile. Avoid it
      this time and jump the yuppie at the big house just past it. That's four.
    
      The last one is a little annoying. Head to the bottom of the hill, keeping
      left in the sled run. Go around the jump on the right side and aim for the
      yuppie standing on the concrete. Time it right to jump over her.
