Ski (minigame)

From the Super Mario Wiki
Ski title screen.

Ski is the minigame Jimmy T. hosts in Game & Wario. It is a single-player minigame.

Story[edit]

Jimmy T. is skiing down a hill. A Ski Bunny spots him and follows him. Soon, many Ski bunnies (and a bear) are skiing after Jimmy. Then, they all ski jump.

Gameplay[edit]

The player must have their GamePad vertically to play. Its screen displays a bird's-eye-view of the area, while the TV shows the view from behind Jimmy. Ski consist of two modes

Time Trial[edit]

This mode involves Jimmy skiing down the hill to reach the Disco club for the best time record. If the player fails to beat the default time record, they will have to retry the course until they meet the minimum time requirement for it. Once the player has beaten a course, more courses will be open. Beating the Gold Trophy time requirement for the first time rewards a coin for the Cluck-A-Pop.

Jimmy can also perform several tricks in the air that will give him a speed boost after he lands. Shaking the GamePad up and down while jumping off a ramp will make Jimmy do a spin move. Shaking it left or right will make him do a slow-motion pirouette in the air. Jumping off right from the middle of a ramp will make Jimmy lose a piece of clothing. After the third time, he will suddenly don a gold suit. Performing too many tricks will make Jimmy lose his fake afro.

Endless Bunny Slope[edit]

The objective in this mode is to keep skiing as long as possible, driving Jimmy away from pits, lakes and walls. As Jimmy skis, he must gather as many Ski Bunnies along the path and reach the Disco Club checkpoints. The game ends if Jimmy falls off the edge at any time.

Boost Mode[edit]

After getting a gold trophy on every level, Boost Mode will be unlocked. In this mode, you can replay every stage at a faster speed. Jimmy is bald from the start, and the player will get Cluck-A-Pops for getting the bronze and gold trophies.

Stages[edit]

  • Li'l Hill: A basic slope with a few speed boosts and a single ramp.
  • Bump Canyon: A slightly longer and windier trail. Mud puddles appear in several spots.
  • Sunset Lake: An even longer trail requiring mid air tricks to achieve speed boosts.
  • Blizz Junction: A windy trail that splits into two paths at some points.
  • Glittery Disco: A basic slope with a large number of ramps and speed boosts.

Controls[edit]
