Though it takes place high in the mountains, it's far from cool
In the 1960s, there were a string of youth-oriented beach movies, with plenty of sun, surf, and songs. When the formula started to get a little stale, some producers simply moved the location to snow-capped mountains, this particular youth-oriented movie being one example of. Unfortunately, the producers forgot to also bring in memorable characters, plenty of sports-oriented action, as well as good songs. "Winter A-Go-Go" is a movie that I'm pretty sure bored even the youth of the 1960s. There is almost no plot here - once the situation is set up, there is pretty much no more story until almost the one hour mark. The acting is nothing special, and the portrayal of women and Asians would be insulting if the movie wasn't so feeble-minded. There's plenty of reasons why this movie has been forgotten.
