Trivia

A "Siskel and Ebert Fruit Cart" appears in the movie in reference to Roger Ebert's glossary of movie terms where, under the title "Fruit Cart!", it's explained that during any chase scene involving a foreign or ethnic locale, a fruit cart will be overturned during the chase, and an angry peddler will run into the middle of the street to shake his fist at the hero's departing vehicle.

Goofs

In the last few minutes of the film the characters Stanley and Tiana are riding together within a convoy of snow machines when Stanley hears calls for help. To get Tiana to stop and pull over he mistakenly calls Tiana by her real name, "Tess", he says. In his next line Stanley clearly calls her Tiana as he should. See more »

a rip on films like HOT DOG
5 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

SKI PATROL was a funny at times, rip on films like HOT DOG. The film was a spoof on movies of the 1980's were the acting was horrible and they had the " preppy 1980's jock ski mentality" in the films, usually the plots being about horny undersexed teens and men in their 1920's who battled the slopes, their preppy wardrobes and hair, and their own egos to get into the sack with the ski lodges hottest, yet shallow women. SKI PATROL uses the POLICE ACADEMY style format in this tale of ski rescue guards who must battle a snobby rich guy and his goons and preserve saftey on then slopes (between wild parties). This film never took itself seriously (which was to it's credit) and features a few inspired sight gags. It even followed in the tradition of HOT DOG and was NOT shot for effect.
