Cool Boarders is a snowboarding video game developed by UEP Systems for the PlayStation.

The game consists of three main courses (plus two additional unlockables) in which the player attempts to gain the fastest time, most points from performing tricks, and also total points, a combination of the two previous disciplines.

This early game, while simple, led the way for the development of much more popular, extreme sport games.

Release

Cool Boarders was first released in Japan in August 1996. At this time Sony Computer Entertainment officials stated that, though snowboarding was not yet as popular in the West as in Japan, they were "seriously considering" localizing the game to North America.[1]

Reception

The game received an average score of 74.00% at GameRankings, based on an aggregate of 6 reviews.[2]
