ESPN Let’s Go Skiing
If you know where you’re going and have what you need, ESPN Let’s Go Skiing (Intellimedia Sports Inc.) will show you what to do. This is a simple program to use. The Main Menu offers three instruction sections: Getting Started, Fundamental Skills, and Techniques. Three ski stars serve as instructors: Holly Flanders, A.J. Kitt, and Picabo Street. You can put the program on automatic pilot or set your own pace. You can also view videos frame-by-frame to check things more closely. Instruction covers all the basics in a clear, intelligent way. This is a good instructional program, and it’s easy to use, but it would benefit from the addition of complementary text. Is it any better than a video? Yes. The ability to repeat, pause, and replay sections, in any order, is easier and faster from a CD-ROM than from a video, and that’s worth a lot when you’re using it to study.
