Storyline

Bus loads of teenagers arrive to the ski resort. Each one is eager to get out on the slopes to ski and score. One problem; the owner has all the prices jacked up, secretly ripping people for the passed two years he has been in charge. The police don't do anything because the Sheriff is in on the cover-up. The teens feel their only chance to even the score is at a skiing tournament where the winner is picked to get a free trip to Hawaii. The horny teens get a terrific idea.

Tedious, justifiably forgotten '80s teen comedy with NO NUDITY.
9 January 2019 | by jadavixSee all my reviews

A group of high school seniors arrive at a snowed in hotel for a skiing tournament.

Their goofy, ineffectual principal is ignored by his students, but then threatens to ruin their good time when three of them - the protagonists, I guess - find out they have to share their hotel room with him. They apparently attempt to murder him by locking him out in the cold. A great idea for a silly comedy, no?

I guess the protagonists are not just the usual '80s sex comedy types looking for fun and girls. They're also psychopaths.

The movie gets a lot of mileage out of showing skiing related accidents, particularly with people yelling out "WHOAAAAAAAA". Gets boring pretty quickly. But these scenes go on forever.

The kooky locals... er, local.. in the town the movie's hotel is in are a crazy old lady who thinks she comes from another planet, or something.

The main character is the typical average joe who is maybe a bit more mature than his goofball buddies, who only care about sex. He's actually interested in the girls for more than just their biological capabilities. Of course, he has a hapless pal who just wants to get laid, and keeps getting shot down.

There's also an unattractive chubby girl who deals with self esteem issues when she keeps getting overlooked by the guys.

Of course, the movie ends with skiing tournament. Who cares who wins? Not me. Not you. You'll just be glad it's ending.
