Also known as: 1080° Silverstorm (JP)
1080° Avalanche was a game built as a true spiritual successor to 1080° Snowboarding on the Nintendo 64, but was mainly for showcasing the GameCube's graphics and processing power.
The root/1080data/misc folder contains a bunch of TPL files, many of which are early graphics.
1080Logo.tpl is an early version of the logo.
transition.tpl is a placeholder of some sort. Also worth noting that 1080° White Storm is the game's early name, as it would be similar to Wave Race: Blue Storm.
alpha.tpl contains some sort of debug text.
Also within the misc folder are two TPL files called Credits.tpl and CreditsTM.tpl. While both include placeholders for a Nintendo of America (NOA) and Nintendo Co., Ltd. (NCL) logos, within the latter is an early version of the game's logo featuring (as you may have guessed) a TM symbol, and thinner outlines.
Also in the misc folder is an early version of the developer credits stored in a plain text file.

While using the Old School Board, pause the game and press Up, Down, Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right on the D-Pad, then press B. A sound will play if entered correctly. When you unpause the game, the screen will be pixelated! Enter the code again to undo the effect.
Note that using this code in Powder Threat will cause the screen to glitch, as seen in the video.
The NST 1080 Avalanche (Jet Rocket) Board can explode if wiping out on the side of the board when your damage meter is down to 1 bar, causing the player to die. This will not work in Trick Attack.
Doing this in Powder Threat will cause the screen to glitch, just like the above.
There are a lot of differences between the English and Japanese versions.
