Released onto the App Store on Dec 4th, Shaun White Snowboarding Origins is a snow boarding simulation game which sees you .. well, snowboarding. Choosing from a selection of custom boards you take to the slopes attempting to learn and eventually perform up to 50 neat board tricks along the way, and with a truck load of downloadable content, you can really add to your virtual snowboarding experience.

Originally priced at $4.99, Advanced Mobile Applications dropped us a short note earlier this morning letting us know that in celebration of the new year, they’ve price slashed the title to just $0.99! No immediate information on how long the sale will last, but I’m guessing it won’t be too long.

The app also recently received an update in the shape of version 1.1, and according to the App Store description the change log includes:

- Bugs fixed
- New start and end sequences
- Name’s of your friend’s ghosts are displayed during a race
- More responsive jump controls
- Bonus score values modified
