This in-home skiing simulator is sure to be popular in areas where snow is at a premium. The unit works more like a piece of exercise equipment rather than a Wii program. It tilts, spins and shakes, generally behaving just as if you are actually skiing down a mountain.

The unit is available from Pro-Idee, a German company for about $2300. It comes preloaded with software featuring runs from popular ski resort all around the world, as well as a racing program.
