Poppermost Productions have brought winter a bit early today, with the release of SNOW through Steam's Early Access program. With the release comes a new trailer which again manages to somehow achieve a zen-like balance of indie fusion paired with shots of freestyle skiing. For clarification, Steam's Early Access program means you can access the game's Alpha version right now provided you purchase a SNOW starter pack.

Unlike traditional course-based ski games, SNOW appears to be giving players the freedom to ski where and how they want. Alexander Bergendahl, who pulls double duty as both Poppermost's CEO and Game Director stated they've "removed all of the restrictions and clutter that we traditionally see in action sports games and with SNOW; allow players to approach the game the way they want”.

While SNOW boasts as having an open world, it appears as though the devs will be populating it one mountain at a time. SNOW's first mountain, Sialia, contains a whopping 8 square kilometers of hand made mountain. For those of us who insist on measuring things in miles, that's an incredible 24.7 square miles of slopes to tackle. This is made even more impressive when you consider the fact that Poppermost is only a 3-man development studio.

SNOW currently offers three different packs for sale through the Early Access program. The aforementioned Starter pack comes with Alpha access along with three founder set items and exclusive colored skis. The Tester and Founder packs, also offer founder items and colored ski's, but grant players access to the Tester pass (Founder gets an extra for a friend). The Tester Access pass grants player's access to another server before the Alpha server, where new features go to be vetted before they make their way into the Alpha. For those who just insist on going deeper.

More information can be found on SNOW's Early Access page here.

So what happens when you reach the bottom of the mountain? Do you get eaten by the yeti?

It says on its steam page that it is single player, how can it be an MMO if there is no multiplayer? lol
