"Bill Gates was the man - he had the money, the power, the world's premiere spreadsheet program, but he also had a terrible secret: The Microsoft Ski Resort.

One fateful night, at the annual Christmas Party, an employee described his vision of the PC going beyond the realm of word processing and slideshow presentations, and in a fit of rage, Bill banished him to the cold, never to return. However, his exile didn't kill him - he instead survived the only way he knew how... by setting fires to trees and eating wild dogs that had somehow wandered onto the slopes.

SkiFree is a classic PC game that has a rich legacy shown in this new video. Interesting to know the history of this classic game and how the abominable snow monster came to ravage the slopes. Ski, if you dare.

I loved that game. Playing it now gives me no fun whatsoever but I guess in middle/high school it was better than doing work! :)

I crack a smile playing it now but I don't play it for more than a few minutes at a time. Then again, I don't think I played it more than a few minutes at a time back in the day either :D

Yeah, about the same here. It's great for a bit of nostalgia, but it loses appeal fast.
