The mountain is yours to explore. So strap in, suit up, and drop in.

Having given players the chance to ski, snowboard, paraglide, and wingsuit around the massive open worlds of the Alps and Alaska, Steep is planning a trip to new locations to take on new challenges in honor of the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

In partnership with the International Olympic Committee, Steep Road to the Olympics will let players loose in South Korea and Japan to participate in Olympic events and explore gorgeous new environments.

It wouldn’t be the Olympics without official Olympic events, so the expansion will include Downhill, Slopestyle, Halfpipe, Giant Slalom, Super G, and Big Air. There will also be some unique challenges to keep things fresh as you choose a country to represent and test your skills against players around the world. And for those thirsty for the legendary powder of Japan, there will be plenty of space to find your own lines, set challenges for your friends, record your highlights, and share them with the Steep community.

Steep Road to the Olympics integrates professional athletes from all around the world into the in-game story mode.

 In Steep Road to the Olympics story mode, players will experience the journey of a young athlete training in three freestyle events (Big Air, Half Pipe and Slopestyle) to reach the Olympic Winter Games and be the first athlete ever to win gold in 3 freestyle events. The competition takes place in the unique South Korean mountains, where the Olympic Winter Games are being held this coming February. Players will also be able to explore the mountains of Japan, carving through unique powder and exceptional environments.

Before each challenge, players will be treated to training tips and insights from Olympians on the variety of Steep™ Road to the Olympics events, track designs and the competition itself. Video testimonials from 10 legends and rising stars will be integrated in-game: Lindsey Vonn, American Alpine Skiier who has won numerous competitions including a gold medal in the downhill event at the Olympic Winter Games Vancouver 2010; Kevin Rolland, French freestyle skier and progressive risk taker who won an Olympic bronze medal in the halfpipe at the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014; Sage Kotsenburg, American snowboarder who won the first-ever Olympic gold medal in men's snowboard slopestyle at the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014; Ayumu Hirano, Japanese competitive snowboarder who won an Olympic silver medal in the halfpipe at the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014; Alexis Pinturault, a French alpine ski racer and Olympic medalist in 2014 for Giant Slalom; Tessa Worley, a French competitor of all five alpine disciplines and specialist of Giant Slalom; the Australian snowboarder Scotty James, a 2x world Halfpipe champion and 2017 Superpipe champion; Gus Kenworthy, an American freestyle skier who won the silver medal in Ski Slopestyle at the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014; young American snowboarder and 2017 Slopestyle snowboarding champion, Julia Marino and Bode Miller, an Olympic gold medalist and the most decorated male American alpine ski racer of all time.
