Tommy Moe's Winter Extreme consists of two sports, the titular skiing and snowboarding, and each of these features three modes: freestyle, training, and compete. In compete mode, the player can choose from downhill, slalom, or giant slalom. The game uses a behind-the-athlete perspective that many future skiing/snowboarding games, such as Amped and SSX, would adopt.
The game is known as Val d'Isere Championship in Europe, named for the French ski resort that was used for downhill skiing events in the 1992 Winter Olympic Games, and as Ski Paradise with Snowboard in Japan. The European version of the game was actually the first to be released, in April 1994. The US version (June 1994) and Japan version (December 1994) came a little later.
