    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Here's A Way To Get Ridiculously High Scores In Alpine Ski: Go thru the downhill section with the points flags very slowly and avoid collecting positive points:
    1) There's some point in the course (should be easy to find) where there's a negative points flag near trees that can be crashed into. This trick is best done here.
    2) Collect negative points to roll your score back under zero. You will be granted massive time on the massive points you have. Unfortunately, time will be taken off at an incredible rate.
    3) Run over the negative points flag as necessary to get rid of the points you win just by moving forward and crashing into the nearby trees.
    4) Repeat Step 4 until you've run out of time. You now have a completely unbeatable high-score which (if it were 1981) people would beg you to tell them how you did it.
    WARNING: ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY DON'T GO BACK ACROSS ZERO OR YOUR GAME WILL END IMMEDIATELY!!!
