SC:08 - Ski-Challenge is a freeware simulation of downhill skiing. Its main motivation is the best time list on the internet. Offline, the only options are training and qualification runs - the player needs to beat a certain time in the qualification to gain access to the online championship. There are no AI opponents but the player has the opportunity to load a ghost (a recording of another player's run) into the game. Despite its aim for mass appeal the game features a detailed physics simulation. This means the choice of skiing material influences the racing experience significantly. There are three pre-defined choices for novices, skilled players and experts but the player also has the opportunity to set the properties himself. The game features four world cup courses (Wengen, Bormio, Gröden and Val d'Isère).
