A year ago, I wrote about the preview build for Grand Mountain Adventure, a gorgeous skiing game that most definitely deserved the attention. In March of this year, the game was officially launched on the Google Play Store and has so far amassed over 300,000 downloads with a solid 4.4-star rating. Suffice to say it's a quality release, and over the previous weekend, one of the developers created a post on Reddit that outlined an upcoming update that will add in snowboarding, twin-tip skiing, and maybe even a few new mountains.


Above you can watch a sneak-peak video for Grand Mountain Adventure's upcoming snowboarding gameplay. It's a short clip but should provide an idea of what's to be expected. We also know that twin-tip skiing should be coming as well as controller support and a few smaller tweaks, plus the possibility of some new mountains. As of yet, no official date has been provided for this update, though it would appear that an iOS port should accompany this work, so there's a possibility we'll receive our update around the same time the iOS version lands.

As it stands, Grand Mountain Adventure is already my favorite skiing game on Android, and once the snowboard update lands, I'm sure it will be my favorite snowboarding game as well. If you'd like to get in on the fun before the new update hits the Play Store, you can, since the game is already available for free. If you like what you see, you can purchase the entirety of the title through a single in-app purchase priced at $5.49. So if you'd like to try it out, make sure to click on the download button in the Play Store widget at the bottom of the page.

Grand Mountain Adventure will receive a major update on January 22nd

This past August, it was revealed that the gorgeous skiing game Grand Mountain Adventure would receive a significant update, but at the time, it was unclear when we should expect this update to land. Today the developer has revealed that the new snowboarding feature I talked about in August will arrive on January 22nd. But that's not all, we've also learned that Android TV and controller support will also be included with the patch, along with new mountains, improved graphics, and new game features. Clearly, this will be a big update, so if you're a huge fan of skiing and snowboarding games like me, the upcoming additions to Grand Mountain Adventure definitely sound like they will be worth exploring. Until then, if you'd like to check out what the game has to offer right now, just click the Play Store widget linked below to install the game.

About Toppluva

Grand Mountain Adventure is the first game developed by Toppluva, a company founded by three snowboarding brothers from Sweden. Development originally started as a passion project over the span of several years. Unlike most games released today, Grand Mountain Adventure is built completely from scratch including a custom game engine, map editor, physics engine, music, models and mountains.

Snowboard Premiere is the latest update for Grand Mountain Adventure, bringing many wanted features

Back in 2018, I was impressed with the preview build of Grand Mountain Adventure, all thanks to a Reddit post created by one of the devs. It was one of the most competent skiing games I had ever played on mobile, and it wasn't even finished. Eventually, a stable build was released on the Play Store, and it has racked up over 500,000 installs over the last year, so clearly, Grand Mountain Adventure is now a reasonably popular game.

Of course, there is always room for improvement, and that's precisely what the game's devs have spent the last year doing. Today marks the release of the latest update for Grand Mountain Adventure on Android (as well as the official release on iOS), and it's a doozy. This update adds snowboards and twin-tip skis to the game, plus players can expect to explore two new mountains (with a third coming in two weeks). The game's graphics have also been improved, and physical controllers are finally supported. Supposedly today's update should also bring Android TV support, but so far, both of my Shield TVs are incompatible with the game, though sideloading may not be out of the question.

For the full changelog, read below:

- Twin-tip skiing and snowboarding so you can land backwards
- 3 New mountains (2 in first version, third will appear in two weeks)
- Android TV support
- Game Controller Support
- Pretty much all graphics have been optimized, changed or updated
It's also worth noting that Grand Mountain Adventure is free-to-play, in the sense that you can play through the first mountain for free to get a feel for the game. If you like what you see, then you can unlock the entirety of the title through a single in-app purchase priced at $5.49.
