SkiFree is a very fun skiing game. Watch out for the yeti!
An early icon made by Chris Pirih can be found in the game's executable. The final icon was drawn by a graphic artist at Microsoft.
Unused sound system
The code for SkiFree contains functionality to load .WAV resources and a commandline switch ("nosound") to disable sound effects, but since the EXE doesn't contain any sound resources, no sound is played in the game. The game attempts to load 9 sounds and trigger them at specific points in the game.
