• Aerial landings : during the Aerials, press B as soon as you hit the ground and keep the button held until you have fully landed.

• Halfpipe gold medal : achieve a combination of F Alley Oop, and Alley Oop during the Halfpipe competition.

• Ski upside down : select Olympic mode and enter the Freestyle Aerials event. Choose any trick, and down press any buttons while moving downhill. After leaving the ramp, rapidly tap B. The skier will land and jump on his head and ski in that position.
