Ski Challenge

What is this?

It's a free online skiing game from ORF (an austrian TV Channel). SkiChallenge is a realistic simulation of the alpine ski world cup.

Where can I download it?

Just choose your country. If yours is not included, no problem, just choose whatever you like. You can set the language to English when installing it.

yeah, i have got down to 2:04's on custom skis in practice on the first italian track...

has a nice balance of arcade ease of play, with just enough meaningful toggles to keep the optionheads happy... good in-play sound, smooth graphics and great sense of speed... with the real key being, as is with every racing sim worth its weight - knowledge of track... yet to give online play a go but, it looks promising with quallies and tournament modes there...

****1/2 for a freebie... :yeah:

There were two weeks to qualify. The time required for qualifying was 2:45, so ridiculously easy. There's always two weeks for qualifying, training etc. and a weekend, Friday to Sunday for the race. You can still qualify during weekends for the race. Anyway I will bump this before the next race in case it gets on page 2 or sth.:D

sorry, I included the link to last year's Ski Challenge (the one for English speakers) in the opening post:o

I've replaced it with the right one.

alrightey, 1st post edited


I know a site, where you can create leagues; I don't mind creating one if there's some others in here playing as well; all I need is your username :)

I finished Gröden with a time of 2:12.986 resulting in an international ranking of 65254. and something around 3000 for Germany only.

The official race is over, but you can still race for fun. :)

next race will be Bormio

I have the game too:D
I played it and suddenly after the next day it won't open again:o:o:o
I don't know what happened to it:sobbing::sobbing:

hmmmm I have no problems, have you tried to reinstall it?

btw. Bormio is online now, you need 2:45 to qualify for the race which will take place this weekend

and you don't need to download anything else than the original game in the opening post, it will update automatically when you launch it and add Bormio (you need internet connection of course)

Bormio race has started. :yeah:

12-27-2008, 02:21 PM
definitely not my course or weather there, I'm around , way worse than Gröden:(

no more skiing yesterday, so a final time of 2:18.404 for Bormio
results in a ranking of 77494. which means about 12.000 positions worse than Gröden
however, I'm pretty surprised I made the Top100000 as people in my group were like 7 or 8 seconds faster than me this time, much more than in Gröden

next up is the Lauberhorn Ski Race in Wengen / Switzerland including the legendary Brüggli-S:worship: (a nearly 90° curve, followed by a small bridge and another 90° curve)

tomorrow until Sunday finally the race in Wengen

tomorrow until Sunday finally the race in Wengen

Qualifying was way too long, I haven't played it for days :o

01-15-2009, 05:22 PM
yes way too long
they should have launched Wengen one or two weeks later maybe
I think I only played during the first two or three days

01-18-2009, 07:17 PM
a time of 2:40,247 for Wengen resulting in a ranking of 48,653rd, my best so far, 1st time Top50,000

what's your time maldini? and everybody else?:p

01-19-2009, 12:14 PM
I had 2:37,458 but had almost no time the weekend, only made about 10 races.

Now Kitzbühel, at least there you don't have to do 1 minute until the hardest part but only about 10 seconds :p I'm at 1:53,7 but there's still a lot of room :p
