At the BlackBerry Developers Conference we got a first look at the new Open GL ES support for BlackBerry. We saw some very cool demos, and have some amazing apps and games to look forward to. Backcountry Ski looks to be one of the first games to take advantage of Open GL on the BlackBerry Storm2. The game lets you ski in open environments on 1 of 24 different trails. There are long and short trails to choose from, all in various areas based on real-life locations. BackCountry ski is a simple game that shows off some of the new technology we can expect to see from many developers in the near future. Its not the most amazing or graphically pleasing game you'll see hit BlackBerry, but it gives us a look into what can be done and is also loads of fun to play. Backcountry Ski is available in the CrackBerry App Store for $4.99.
