How to Cheat Lifestyles
There is a brand new personality system that came with this pack called lifestyles. These are interesting and can change with your sim. There are two ways that you can cheat to give your sim a lifestyle, or remove one.
The first way to get this done is to use a shift click cheat. To do this you want to make sure cheats are enabled and then hold down shift and then click on your sim. Then you’ll see the cheat sim info option and you can go to add or remove lifestyles and choose which one you’d like to add or remove.
The second way to change up a sim’s lifestyle is to add or remove it with a trait cheat. These are just technically a hidden trait that you can’t see in your sim’s traits panel but operates much the same. You’ll want to use the below traits to add a lifestyle, or change the word equip to the word remove to get rid of a lifestyle.

With The Sims 4: Snowy Escape we got three new skills for your sims to learn. They are all related to the new extreme sports you can do which include rock climbing, skiing and snowboarding.
If you want to give your sims the skill without having to spend your entire life on the mountain, you can use skill cheats to get the job done. You can use any of these cheat codes but change up the x at the end for whatever level of the skill you’d like to get.

There is only one new career in The Sims 4: Snowy Escape, the salaryperson career. This career has long hours and makes decent money but can take over a ton of your time, however, when you get to higher levels you’ll start having more reasonable hours.
Thankfully, you can use the promote or demote career cheats to get your sim higher in the career or lower in the career.
