Storyline

Goofy, staying at the Sugar Bowl resort, demonstrates the basics of downhill skiing, which the titles and announcer insist is pronounced "SHEEing". The equipment is, of course, of the era. As you can imagine, Goofy has much trouble keeping his skis parallel and pointing downhill. The final ski jump conveniently lands Goofy right back in bed. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Not the best, but still enjoyable!
25 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This doesn't belong to my favourite Goofy cartoons. What is good about it though is that it is very amusing. Sure, the animation is a little dated, and some of the narration got a little distracting, but seeing Goofy struggling on skis was very, very funny, especially when he rides down the side of the mountain, and disappears down a hole, and you hear that trademark whine he makes. The narrator assures Goofy it is all very simple, but Goofy fails miserably. It's part of an ongoing joke, that Goofy is pretty useless at anything simple. I liked the music and I liked the ending. Overall, very good, not Goofy's best, but entertaining for fans. 8/10 Bethany Cox.
