Altitude is a card game about mountains in winter.
The goal is to build the highest mountain with numbered cards. The mountain is pyramidal (you can play a card only if its number is higher than the other two cards under it).
On your turn, you draw a card, and can play it on your, or the opponent',s mountain. Or keep it in hand by playing a card from your hand to your mountain. There are numbered cards, some with animals (victory points) and some avalanche cards that can be prevented with savers or cable car.
You score points with the height, animals on our mountain and savers kept in hand at the end.
