You could outrun the yeti, but the game would go on forever.ID: hbdj3qq
I hear when it came out, it was possible.
What happened: the speed you're skiing corresponds to the CPU's clock cycle. So computers quickly got faster, so the speed quickly got faster to the point it was impossible to be good.ID: hbbx5ur
