Go to Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Shaun White Snowboarding (that's from memory, so if I missed a letter, sorry, but you get the idea)
Rename ShaunWhiteSnowboarding.exe to ShaunWhiteSnowboardingLauncher.exe
Rename ShaunWhiteSnowboardingUpdater.exe and name it ShaunWhiteSnowboarding.exe
Then run from steam and it will bypass the launcher and go straight into the game. If you need to change settings, you can manually run the launcher, but it won't launch the game afterwards. Hope that helps.
