I got this game and love it. However, I must point out that characters act very cool(kinda like gangsters) and insult bad players(occasionally). You can also perform stunts way to dangerous to be performed in the real world(such as riding jagged rails, skiing down rocky mountains not designed for skiing, etc.) which may be misinterpreted by little kids. One of my favorite parts about this game is the 4 player mode, in which players can meet, split up, practice at the snow school, ride lifts, do tricks, and have a blast(like real skiers). There is a hint of violence, which is smashing into other innocent bystanders(and making a little grunt["Ouch!" "Oof!" "Hey!"]). The most scariest thing in this game that a little kid could play following as a role model is the ability to talk to any random person that asks to ski with you. Other than that, a great game.
