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
