Downhill Skiing
Involves the highest speeds and therefore the greatest risks of all the alpine events. Racers can exceed speeds of 130 kilometers per hour (80 mph) and require considerable strength and technical expertise. Water or salt are often spread throughout the course to ensure that it gets icy, which inhibits dangerous rutting of the course, but also increases speed. The course is designed to challenge the best skiers in a variety of tasks: skiing at high speeds over ice, through difficult turns, extreme steeps, flats, and huge airs (jumps).

Teams make timed runs down narrow, twisting, banked, iced tracks in a gravity-powered sled. Modern tracks are made of concrete and artificial ice. They are required to have at least one straight and one labyrinth. Ideally, a modern track should be 1200 to 1300 meters long and have at least fifteen curves. Speeds may exceed 130 km/h, and some curves can subject the crews to as much as 5 g. Luge and Skeleton events have only 1 or 2 person sleds.

Ski Jump
Is divided into four separate sections; 1) In-run, 2) Take-off (jump), 3) Flight and 4) Landing. In each part the athlete is required to pay attention to and practice a particular technique in order to maximize the outcome of ultimate length and style marks. Aerodynamics has become a factor of increasing importance in modern ski jumping, with recent rules addressing the regulation of ski jumping suits.

There are snowboard slalom events and halfpipe events. Halfpipe scoring is judge based and rated on jump height, rotations, and technique.

This is not a free game! With this version you can only play: Bobsled (2 man and 2 women) and Downhill (men's and Women's). You have to buy the full version (DLC $1.99) to play the other events.

Yup, and buggier than a bait store. It crashed on me twice when trying to enter events. Not only that, when I actually selected the DLC, it didn't really do anything or seem to connect anywhere. I'm hoping I didn't buy it by accident, but this was a week or so ago and nothing showed up on my CC. And even ignoring all that, when I did get into the events they were shoddy, clunky, and not fun at all.

Honestly I think this game has the distinction of being the most hastily deleted of any apps I've downloaded.
