We spoke to the game's creator, Giles Goddard, and he explained that there is a throughline with 1080 Snowboarding.

"Without giving away too many secrets, the fundamental physics model is very similar to 1080 but a lot more refined thanks to faster CPUs etc," he said.

"The control scheme has also obviously been redesigned to make full use of the Oculus Touch controllers and the entire experience is designed for VR of course. We also have a cabin... but no Ricky Winterborn."
