Featured Riders Medal at 2010 Winter Games

Featuring five of the hottest riders in the world: Olympic Star Gretchen Bleiler, half-pipe gold medal winner Hannah Teter, X-Games gold winner Lindsey Jacobellis, and X Games gold winner Nate Holland.

Triple Crown was built from the ground up for Wii Balance Board controls. Up to 8 players can compete with the Balance Board alone, but those who prefer Wii Remote and nunchuk control can still experience the fun.

Grab your board and hit the slopes with some of the biggest names in competitive snowboarding! Destineer announces that Triple Crown Championship Snowboarding for Wii has shipped to stores. Compete against pros Hannah Teter, Gretchen Bleiler, Lindsey Jacobellis, Seth Wescott, and Nate Holland in Snowboard Cross, Halfpipe, and Slopestyle events. Triple Crown Championship Snowboarding is the only game that brings the biggest pros and the best snowboarding events to your living room!

Destineer is proud to congratulate each of the riders featured in Triple Crown Championship Snowboarding for their performances at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Hannah Teter took silver in the half pipe competition and Seth Wescott won his second consecutive gold medal for his amazing performance in snowboard cross (SBX).

With full Wii Balance Board accessory support, Triple Crown Championship Snowboarding features four core event types with an additional matching number of variants:

Half pipe: The ideal setup to show off the most breathtaking tricks, Triple Crown Championship Snowboarding drops you into the pipe alone to rack up the highest score, but also offers two variants – Endless Half Pipe (where good tricks earn extra time to keep the run going) and Dual Half Pipe for head-to-head split screen competition.

Snowboard Cross (SBX): A breakneck race to the finish, SBX features four riders at a time launching themselves down the mountain, trying to find the optimal path. Some friendly shoving might be the only way to clear your chosen line, so don’t worry about being gentle!

Slopestyle: Combining the tricking of half pipe with slalom’s white-knuckle precision speed, the Slopestyle events test players on all fronts.

Slalom: Speed is your friend, but accuracy getting around the gates correctly will earn you the top slot in Triple Crown Championship Snowboarding’s slalom races. One alternate challenge gives you precious time with each successfully-navigated gate to see how long you can make the ride last and another adds the friendly aggression of SBX’s shoves!

Each of the main event types also feature multiplayer (for two to four local players) and Wii Balance Board support.
