I have been playing Snow for many hours straight now
trying to figure out controls, tricks, jumps etc and I reached the
level when I can finally enjoy the game and go to park and hit all three
kickers (well 2 always, last one is tricky) with confidence and do cool tricks which are very challenging
to do. I think the way Snow modeled doing tricks is very good because it
actually needs practice I needed to do each trick like 15 times before I
started stomping them. All of the following tips about jumps are tested
in Park not in backcountry.
Okay Lets start with basics
Many of you have probably figured this one out but I will still tell you. If you need speed quickly press and hold W and at the same time tap A and D as quick as possible. so it should go like ADADADADADAD. I hope this makes sense. This will help you get speed quickly.
As we know all tricks require having many fingers pressing many different buttons at the same time and quickly changing them often messes everything up so I found solution. All park tricks (except 360&180) require Shift in order to go smoothly so while on approach to jump get as much speed as possible (use method above) then press and hold Space and Shift with your Thumb and Pinky fingers as this leaves three fingers to set up for trick. When on the end of the jump just release Space and hold keys that you have for trick. It should be smooth transition, as soon as space released press trick keys. It will avoid crashes at the end of kicker and makes all tricks easier. Make sure not to release your pinky from Shift.
When doing 360, 720, 1080+. and Lincoln Loops basically straight spins with normal landing just tap W at the end of the spin just before skier finishes rotation to make sure you do not crash.
For Switch landing same except tap S instead.
Below I explain all tricks that I have figures out for my eye. I do not say they are 100% accurate but I tried my best. If you see any mistakes please PM me and I will correct them.
NOTE! MOST OF FOLLOWING TRICKS ARE HARD TO DO AND DO NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT IMPOSSIBILITY TO DO THEM AS I CAN DO THEM.
This is really easy but I will still include it. Right after takeoff press W (without Shift) and after getting close to landing press shift which will make skier tuck and will end up being Super Man.
Okay, Misty is very messed up in this game. You can not do real Misty 7 as it ends up being some weird trick. Closest I was able to get was W+E right after takeoff and after coming back to normal position release W+E and press S for extra 180 or 360 or 540. For doubles keep holding W+E for two flips then press S for extras.
Same thing goes with cork. It is impossible to do realistic cork with easy controls. But I figured it out. After Take off press S and after 180/360/540 (depending on final spin goal) press S+D which will get you inverted. This is best way to do Cork so far.
Rodeo (Not sure)
I think I have it but I am not sure don't judge me. I get closest for my looks by doing E+S after take off then release after one full flip and A for extra spin.
Flat (Not Sure)
Again, I am not sure but for my eye this looks okay. Right after takeoff press and hold E+S+A at the same time and after one full flip release those and press A for extra spin.
I hope this helps. Again for any mistakes please PM me and I will give you credit and edit them.
