Snowy Escape - No action on slopes

[ Edited ]
★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.68.154.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All.


Steps:

 

How can we find the bug ourselves? Try and use a slope
What happens when the bug occurs? Grayed out options.  Action not possible text bubble.  Go skiing/snowboarding not working either.
What do you expect to see? Sims should be able to ski/snowboard -- haven't tried sledding yet.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Patch + Expansion

Figured it out.... do not ski with familiars... lol

This specific sim is a Spellcaster.  I assumed it was possible Transportalate was causing the issue and disabled it, but am unable to ski/snowboard on slopes or use option Go Ski/Snowboard.

Items purchased currently:  Sulco Basic Snowboard & YetiScape SnowShock Skis [neither work]
Skill Level:  Snowboard 2, Skiing 0

Sadly, I highly doubt that they will fix this. Me and a bunch of people have had this horrible game crashing bug that came with eco lifestyle, there are 12 pages of this same bug being reported and yet all they did was send out a robot to say that they were “looking into it”.

Im playing on the PS4 and snowboarding is no longer an option, my sims are level 9 and 7 and now they can't snowboard. 😑

The error message says that you can not ski on the intermediate slope because you are not level 3 in skiing. Use the easy slope to ski until you become at least level 3.

@jpkarlsen If you read my comment it was concerning snowboarding not skiing. I was showing in my pictures that snowboarding is not even an option...

No it says there are no mountains around. Even while standing on one.

Your SIM is not in the picture. Does he have a Familiar or a Drone active?

I see you are on PS4 not PC. There is currently a bug with Console where you can not ski or snowboard. [OPEN] [XB/PS] [SE] Slopes not unlocking beyond easy - Answer HQ
