About Grand Mountain Adventure: Wonderlands

Developed by Swedish studio Toppluva, Grand Mountain Adventure: Wonderlands is a beautiful open-world skiing & snowboarding game where you get to explore entire mountains filled with hundreds of challenges to discover and compete in. So strap on your skis or board and prepare for a great adventure in the snowy mountains!

With more than 8 million players to date, the game will now be released on Steam and Nintendo Switch. This expanded, reworked and improved version will feature significantly enhanced graphics & lifelike AI, local multiplayer, new mountains, and much more.


Key features:
  • An ode to exploration: Strap on your skis or board and explore 12 huge open-world ski resorts. Discover powdery backcountry areas, deep forests with wildlife, busy slopes, steep cliffs, high peaks and cozy mountain-side villages.
  • Numerous challenges await you in the mountains: Compete in Super G, Slopestyle, Big Air, and many other disciplines. Search for hidden challenges and secret trials outside the slopes. Collect ski passes to unlock new ski lifts and mountains!
  • Ski alone or with friends: Play in Local Multiplayer for up to 4 players. Race to the finish line, knock down each other with snowballs or cruise down the mountains together. Feel free to explore the mountain together.
  • Take a break with Zen Mode: Zen Mode is all about having a quiet and regenerating time for yourself. All challenges, trials, collectibles and even NPC are removed, leaving you entire untouched mountains to explore just by yourself. Grab a hot cocoa and enjoy the snowy mountains at your own pace!
