Plot Summary

Harkin Banks is a young Idaho farm kid who is also an ace at skiing. He is headed to the freestyle skiing championships in Squaw Valley, CA along with runaway Sunny. He meets his adversary in the form of Rudy, a self centered European skier who doesn't take a liking to Harkin or his new found friends, The Rat Pack, led by veteran Dan O' Callahan. Harkin has many misadventures with Dan and his buddies, but doesn't lose focus in his attempt to get the World Cup. Written by Pat McCurry

Trivia James Saito, who played Kendo, couldn't actually speak Japanese. He fooled the entire crew for the first 3 weeks. See more »
Goofs When Dan challenges Rudy to the Chinese Downhill, he states, "Forty bucks a man, winner takes all." At the start of the race, the announcer says that the winner will get $2300. 2300 doesn't divide evenly by 40. Further, only about 26 racers can be seen at the start. That would make the grand total $1040. See more »
