For those who like to party!
12 March 2001 | by (Drachten, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

It's a great movie for everyone who likes comedy. Two groups battle against each other both on and of the mountain. Reid Janssens, one of the leaders of a ski-class (section 1) takes skiing real serious and is sometimes an ego-maniac when it comes to teaching how to ski. The other leader (section 8) is Dave Marshak. The only thing he teaches to his class is partying and that ski-school is not learning how to ski. Reid wants to be King of the Mountain and is willing to take any risk to get rid of Dave. Dave on the other hand is setting up scenes to make section 1 like a couple of fools. The beautiful surroundings and, of course, the pretty women make this movie complete. I bought the video on sale and saw it more then 15 times, I guess. But it's still a great movie!
