Hi I have just got the Wii balance board and was thinking about getting the Wii family ski game.
has anyone tried it? googling it has given very mixed reviews (from fantastic to pants). It will be used by DS1 (age 5) and me and DH.

We really enjoy it but we are a skiing family! Board isn't essential and only one can play at a time on it, whereas up to 4 can go together with remote/nunchucks.

We play it, but are also a skiing family. My kids are 7 & 5. We always try and go up the chair lifts together [sad emoticon]. The nigh skiing is good. My ds starts off at the top of the mountain and tries to knock over as many skiers as he can. A bit like real life actually grin

My 3.6 year old loves it. I just love watching him. We got it as not skiing this year due to me being pg, and am hoping it will wet his appetite for next year.

Hoorah we've finally cracked the last orienteering clue ! dc really good on tricks and moguls .

Are there any other wii games which have "quests" like this - thinking of ds' b'day coming up.
