Recording Audio on the Mountaintop with SNOW

The developers for winter sports game Snow wanted authentic sounds of skiing and snowboarding. How else are they going to do it but record on the mountain?

Snow purports to be the world's first open-world, free to play winter sports game. With the option to ski and snowboard throughout an open world environment, the developers knew that they would have some interesting challenges through the world of sound design. 

With that in mind Poppermost hired a team of audio engineers and professional winter sports athletes to record audio on top of the mountain in an attempt to get that authentic feel. You can see their attempts and measure their success in the video above. 

Snow is currently in Beta and available on Steam Early Access
