OXCGN’s SSX Review
Is this snowjob extreme fun or a wipeout?

An alert informs me that my best score on Denali is no longer strong enough to keep me in the money.
I’m at risk of losing the cash I’ve committed to that Global Event, and there are only a couple minutes left to salvage it.
I drop in, promptly launching off a 200’ cliff in a series of acrobatic flips and spins that could rival Red Bull’s most dramatic footage.
My landing triggers an avalanche, and it’s off to the races as I try to keep safely out of its clutches.
I cut back and forth, carving wide swathes in the powder, vaulting off spines of snow-covered rock, hurdling fingers of the avalanche that reach out at me.
All the while one of my favorite tracks by The Mars Volta accompanies my run, ebbing and flowing with each of my leaps and spills.
I reach safety by the skin of my teeth, securing myself a nice purse.
