SSX hits the powder on Valentine's Day

Is there a better way to celebrate affection for your significant other than barreling down a mountain on little more than a plank of wood while being pursued by avalanches? Probably. But that's just what folks will be able to this Valentine's Day when EA Canada's SSX finally hits store shelves. A new trailer for the game, called 'Survive It,' accompanies the announcement.

As the trailer shows, SSX will have no shortage of interesting challenges to undertake. "Will you survive the 9 Deadly Descents?" asks the trailer. With SSX's challenges ranging from snowboarding down a massive peak with a limited oxygen supply to night runs and white-outs, it sounds like a reasonable question.

SSX releases for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 14.
