***SPOILERS*** Fantastic ski acrobatics, done by stunt men not the stars in the film, makes the movie more then worth watching with it's story in deep freeze as far as logic and believably is concerned. There's Mafia front and businessman Ben Forbes, Howard Duff, who's to spill his guts out before a Federal Grand Jury about his and his son John, Graham McPherson, mob connections. This has the mob send hit-man Clevenger, played by former Canadian skiing champion Pieere Jalbert, to knock him & Jr off before they can open their mouths before the grand jury. We also have skiing womens champ Lee Larson, Debroah Ruffin, roughing it up with her boyfriend also ski champ, in the mens division, Dick Elson, Charles Frank, who's in competition with her agent Marve Gilman, Clu Gulager, that my lead to fireworks on the cold and snowy ski slopes of Silver City.

We also have hot shot skier Mike Sloan, Don "Don-Jon" Johnson, who ends up being the hero of the movie by saving himself and a number of people on a damaged and hanging on a cable ski-lift ending up breaking his shoulder and preventing him from the ski competition that he's surly to win. The best is saved for last with Clevenger kidnapping the wounded, he was also injured in the ski-lift accident, Ben Forbes who was set up by his confused and guilt ridden girlfriend, even though she didn't know it, Vicki Gordon, Gail Strictland . After murdering Forbes Clevenger planned to hide his body in the snow that will be frozen stiff until the spring thaw sets in.

It was Dick who saved the day and Forbes' life with his amazing skiing abilities that just about blew everyone watching the movie away. Even though it wasn't him or the actor who played him Charles Frank doing the skiing. There's also former "Ironside" regular Don Galloway playing a judge, Ron Corley, at the ski competition as well as cute and sexy Lisa Reeves as bar girl Wendy. It's Wendy who does a hot & sexy T-shirt dance that raises the temperature in the snow covered town well above freezing!
