Achievement Guide & Roadmap

Roadmap

Offline: 10 (50)
Online: 0 (0)

Minimum number of playthroughs needed: Many

Introduction
Welcome to Kinect Sports Gems: Ski Race. You will be racing downhill as you through gates, jumping jumps and racing to the finish line before your opponent does. As in the other Gems games, you will have to complete challenges in order to unlock more challenges and earn stars to level up in the process.

Playthrough
The only objective is to complete challenges to earn stars and level up. You'll be playing several games to do so as new challenges won't open up until the game is over. See what your challenges are before starting a new game to get a strategy of what you need to do to complete what you can as fast as you can. You can see what your current challenges are at the end of a game, before starting a game, and by pausing the game.

Conclusion
This game shouldn't give you too much of a headache as most of the challenges can be obtained with very little effort. In just a few short hours you should have completed all the challenges, reached level 10 and have the 50 in this short and easy game.

Ski Zen Master 5
Maxed out! You reached level 10 (or observed another player doing so) and you're a Ski Zen Master.

Reaching level 10 isn't too difficult but some challenges can be quite challenging and you must complete every challenge in order to earn all 101 stars. For the most you will be ducked/hunched down to gain the most speed and leaning from left to right to pass through the gates. Here are a few tips to completing the challenges:
  • I found that ducking down almost into a ball with your hands on the ground will get the most speed. You know you're going really fast when you see a faint, white border around the screen.
  • If you use the above method, you may notice that you don't have to actually jump on the jumps in the game. I just stood straight up, raised me arms and spread my legs. Basically you will look like a human "X" or in other words you will look like you are in the middle of doing a jump and jack.
  • The last challenge "Reach max speed" is a speed of 147 km/h.
  • To get a perfect start every time, thrust your pelvis forward and your arms back to the ticking of the countdown buzzer. Continue to do this even when the ticker stops. This worked for me every time.
  • A "perfect race" consists of passing through every gate without missing one. Missing a jump doesn't affect getting a perfect race so if you miss a jump don't worry about it.
  • When going for the missing alternate gates challenge, keep track of which gates you've missed. They don't always alternate left, right, left, right. I completed this challenge by missing the first gate and then getting each alternate gate afterwards.
  • The hardest challenge is "Score a time of 46 seconds in a race." In order to do this you will need a perfect start, pass through every gate getting a perfect race, make every jump a perfect jump, and maintain top speed whenever possible. Slowly turn into gates instead of a quick, sharp turn to avoid slowing down too much. Unless you're jumping a jump, stayed tucked down. Make sure to go through the gates instead of smacking into the flag to prevent slowing down.
  • And just like the other Kinect Sports Gems games, you can simply be in another player's game who completes these challenges and you will get the achievements associated with how far they level up to.

The complete list of challenges are:
  • 1 star: Cross the finish line
