Also this price at HMV, but currently on 21 day waiting time. The price on this has gone down quite a bit at a few places, probably to clear stock before the sequel (Family Ski and Snowboard) comes out at the end of February. This alway used to be around the £27-£30 mark, sometimes you could get it for a few quid less if you were lucky.

Family Ski is a relaxed winter sports game and uses the motion controllers to let players Ski. The Wii Remote and Nunchuck simulate the Ski Poles, used to accelerate and move off from a stationary point and turn in a specific direction.
When these are used in collaboration with the Wii Fit peripheral, the Wii board, players can be further immersed into a unique experience of skiing. The Wii Board takes over to allow the player to turn whilst skiing by measuring the swaying and leaning of the body.
