Trivia

The character of David Marshack was originally scripted, and played out as David Marshall. However, feeling the name was too bland, Marshall was dubbed over with Marshack; unfortunately, the mouth movements of the other characters do not hide this fact as well as the director would have liked. Nor were the visual cues changed: at just under 1 hour into the film, the place card for David Marshall can be clearly seen on the leader board, just as Marshack slides to a halt beneath it.

Goofs

During the final scene, in the shot before Dave slides, a guy in the crowd wearing a hat and sunglasses can be seen on one side of the dance floor, but as Dave slides, he can be seen walking on the other side. See more »

For those who like to party!
12 March 2001 | by wim hiemstraSee all my reviews

It's a great movie for everyone who likes comedy. Two groups battle against each other both on and of the mountain. Reid Janssens, one of the leaders of a ski-class (section 1) takes skiing real serious and is sometimes an ego-maniac when it comes to teaching how to ski. The other leader (section 8) is Dave Marshak. The only thing he teaches to his class is partying and that ski-school is not learning how to ski. Reid wants to be King of the Mountain and is willing to take any risk to get rid of Dave. Dave on the other hand is setting up scenes to make section 1 like a couple of fools. The beautiful surroundings and, of course, the pretty women make this movie complete. I bought the video on sale and saw it more then 15 times, I guess. But it's still a great movie!
