Storyline

In this made for TV film, an enormous and angry bigfoot creature begins to terrorize a Colorado Ski Resort during a winter carnival, by eating several skiers. At first everyone insists it is just a bear, until ski patrolman Tony Rill sees a white shadowy beastly shape disappearing into the woods. Although Tony's grandmother Mrs. Carrie Rill, who owns the Ski Resort and the town sheriff, Sheriff Paraday disagree, it soon becomes clear when the creature finally attacks the town.

Trivia

While shooting on location in the Colorado mountains the temperatures would rarely rise above five degrees during the day and would drop well below zero during the evening. In fact while shooting the scene where Gar and Tony talk in the hot tub the actors wet hair would actually start to freeze during filming. See more »

Goofs

Ellen's skis and straps change color from when she is at the lodge (33:30 min) and on the slopes (34:17 min) to the next scene where she removes her skis while tracking the Snowbeast (39:15 min). See more »

Quotes

Sheriff Paraday: I understand she was a guest at your ski lodge. I was hoping you could help me idenify her.
Tony Rill: I must have seen her somewhere. Maybe I will recognize her when I see her face.
Sheriff Paraday: She does not have one.

If Love Cheap And Chessy...
7 January 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

If you love cheap and chessy movies, this little beauty is for you. I love these kinds of films, and this one has a fond spot in my heart. I remember it from 1977. Snuggled up on the soffa with my teenie girl squeeze. This was a cool night for a 14 year old dude. This film is fun with some pretty good moments. This beast did get hit with the ugly stick, big and bad. Maybe that's why it's so ticked off. I found this film as part of a triple feature DVD for under $10.00. And it's well worth the time to look back at a cheap and chessy 70's monster flick. I won't give anything away. I do recommend that you check it out. Plus it's kinda cool to see all the old tv actors from yesterday's gone by. Clint Walker and Bo Svenson are fun to watch. Take care and ENJOY!!
