About the film[]

The film stars Patrick Houser as Harkin Banks, a young and ambitious skier from Idaho who is determined to prove himself in a freestyle skiing competition at Squaw Valley.

Along the way he teams with a pack of fun-loving incorrigibles (whose leader, Dan O'Callahan is played by Davis Naughton), picks up an Austrian arch-nemesis named Rudi (John Patrick Reger), and enters a love triangle with a pair of blondes, a young woman named Sunny and the more mature Sylvia Fonda (played by Playboy Playmate Shannon Tweed in one of her first major film roles).
