Performing a Ski trick in Riders Republic

Learning how to perform Ski and Snowboard tricks in Riders Republic won’t only make you look cool, but it will also help you earn more Stars and score more points, too. Skis and Snowboards have mostly the same tricks and are mechanically very similar. If you haven’t already, make sure to check out ‘Riders Republic: All Bike Tricks List‘ to hone up on your biking skills, too.

Ski and Snowboard Rotation Tricks in Riders Republic

Grind Ski and Snowboard Tricks in Riders Republic

‘Grind manual mode’ can be enabled in the settings, which allows new ways to score, but the game won’t automatically allow you to grind anymore.

50-50: Release B / O / Right a few meters before the end of the rail

Boardslide: Release B / O / Right  when approaching the rail, using the left stick held to the left to ensure the board or skis are perpendicular with the rail.

Exit & Transfer: Aim in the direction of the rail you want to transfer to and release B / O

Nose/Tail Press: While grinding, hold up on the left stick to Nose Press or down to Tail Press

Rail Turn: Hold the left stick to the left or right in the direction you would like to go.
