View Full Version : [issue] Snowboards are able to move forward uphill, while skis cannot

Snowboards are able to push uphill, and along flat ground much much better than skis can. This means that if you're skiing you can easily get stuck on the mountain and unable to get out unless you switch to walking or snowboarding.
This has happened many times during challenges, forcing me to restart them.

There was a previous post about this, but it's kind of died since the ubisoft staff who was looking at it hasn't been on the forums in a few days, so I decided to make a new one with some other details.

I also know that there currently is a exploit that people are using to cheat on trick challenges by using the snowboard to go uphill and redo the jumps all over. I hope that gets fixed, but I also still want the ability to be able to get out of these small areas without having to restart challenges, or switch to walking.
Especially in free roam I want the ability to go slightly uphill with skis just as you can in real life.

Here are some videos I have made showing the issue in multiple different areas, all with different slope angles:

Even more after the patch released on the 25th of January which was said to fix this issue (clearly it hasn't at all):

Please address the problem with not being able to skate or push uphill on skis. This is a huge issue.

In the most recent patch notes it says this "First snowboard push-off is stronger than skiing (not intended behavior). Fixed per community request."
This is false, the issue has not even slightly been fixed.

In fact the issue has been made much worse than it was in any of the previous patches. Beforehand with skis you could move forward on ice with ease, but now it is near impossible.

I have uploaded some more videos demonstrating the issue after the most recent patch:

Yes I can confirm this is realy annoying on skis. On Night Owl I stuck so many times.

Bump for this fix.

I have the same issue. With the update of 1.04 the skating or pushing off with skis has gotten much worse. You not only can't go up slight hills, you can't go across ice, nor can you go on flat ground. Why was this made worse than before? I appreciate developers listening and acknowledging the issue, but it didn't get fixed in this update. Just got much worse. Please repair this issue as doing challenges or even exploring the mountain on skis is terrible. I have the PC edition by the way.
