Storyline

Christian Biton is a skiing instructor in the Italian Alps. He has a wealthy girlfriend, Monica Scotti, and expensive tastes. To be able to live in style he has a plan : to lay hands on the 250,000 dollars that represent the gains of the winter resort where he works. He manages to persuade Monica to join in the heist as well as Bob Skinner, a ski racer down on his luck who needs the money to replenish his finances. The caper as such succeeds but the three accomplices should not celebrate too soon. An insurance investigator indeed appears on the scene... Written by Guy Bellinger

Must for skiing fans
28 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this when I was in my early twenties, and it became a firm favourite of mine. The plot is simple and revolves around a heist up in the mountains in Italy. However the get away is unique and spectacularly executed and revolves around a lot of skiing. As skiing was a great passion of mine then, the VHS tape the film was recorded on was constantly being watched. Sadly, after being watched so many times my tape is 'dead' and unwatchable. Jean Claude Killy is absolutely fabulous in this film, and the videography of his skiing is excellent. Like many films there are a few twists and an unexpected ending! Don't be put off, this film is truly excellent, it may be old but it is extremely watchable.

Definitely a must watch for skiing fans anywhere. Anyone who is reading this who has some influence; please please please can we have this released on DVD or Blu ray so skiing fans all over the world can benefit and enjoy this wonderful film.
