Wish you could be strapped in free riding down the mountain at any given moment? Now you can as Ubisoft along with Advanced Mobile Applications have released Shaun White Snowboarding: Origins [iTunes Link - $4.99] for iPhone and iPod touch.

With excellent 3D graphics and touch controls, you can choose from four different characters to snowboard with at destinations around the world including USA, Chile, Japan, and Spain. Each playable character has their own unique control, trick or speed specialties. Once you have your player selected you will be introduced to the snowboarding world with a tutorial by White and then you are on your own. 50 or so tricks can be pulled off, including ollies, flips and grabs. As you progress you can earn unlockable content, such as real-life snowboarding footage of White and friends by earning achievements.

To add a ton of replay value you get various game modes such as one freestyle option, and three that make use of a ghost feature. Now toss in leaderboards, and Twitter and Facebook connections and you have yourself a nice little game.

See you on the mountain...
