In this made for TV film, an enormous and angry bigfoot creature begins to terrorize a Colorado Ski Resort during a winter carnival, by eating several skiers. 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!

Ellen, you where right. Coming up here was a dumb idea.
I never said it was a dumb idea. I just thought you might feel better getting a job outside the ski business.
This is all I know how to do.
You know what I think, Gar? You really don't want a job. This is just some damn excuse to back off and still feel right about it!
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. Writer Joseph Stefano and director Herb Wallerstien changed the scene to have the Snowbeast attack the town's gymnasium were they are holding a skiing contest for the snow champions. The fall from ski lift scene appears in some other versions of this film. See more
