Storyline

The management of a ski resort blatantly ignores a local expert's warning that a mass of snow has build up which is just waiting to come down the ski slopes in a terrible avalanche. Instead of clearing the endangered area, skiers are allowed to remain 'for the rest of the day'. Nature doesn't wait till after business hours, so the crystallized wave rushes down and crushes everything on its path, including a brand new hotel; among the guests is the architect Michael Cooper's own family, which now tries to remember the plans well enough to find the way out, as he tries to instruct the rescue operation above, where a second, even larger avalanche is expected.

A tolerable TV thriller.
25 January 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a made-for-TV thriller starring Jack Wagner as Michael Cooper, who launches a rescue mission to save his wife, daughter and others from being trapped in a ski lodge hit by an avalanche.

It is notable seeing the the aftermath of the avalanche has on the trapped people, making it pretty intriguing to wonder how they will get out of this predicament alive.

The acting was so-so, pretty campy at times, and the plot is somewhat slow at times, especially the story being consumed at times by the characters' bickering. Not one of the better TV movies, but also not one of the worst. It's tolerable at least.

Grade C
