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.
The legendary creature is half man... half animal... and a cold blooded killer!

The National Broadcasting Company decided it would be a little violent to have a skier fall from the ski lift and break a leg and then become a victim to the Snowbeast. In this scene, it was where the Winter Games took place.
