In case you haven't noticed it in our coverage the last few months, EA Sports is relaunching their SSX franchise with the aptly titled SSX. The snowboarding genre will see a champion return, hopefully in fine form, towards the end of this month.

But, as the PSA name implies in the headline of this post, gamers will be able to get their hands on a sampling of the full SSX experience today. As of drafting this story, the SSX demo is currently available to Gold members on Xbox LIVE right now. PlayStation 3 gamers will need to wait until the PlayStation Store is updated later today in order to snag their chance to ride in a limited fashion.

The video at the head of this post is an official tips and tricks clip from the fine folks at EA Sports. Check it to prep for the demo itself as you queue it up for download on your platform of choice.

I'm personally psyched for SSX. I dumped way, way, way too much time into the series when it was still in full swing earlier last decade (yikes), and I hope to do the same for this newest iteration.

SSX will launch for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms on February 28th, 2012 in North America.
