Storyline

A helicopter pilot work with a husband and his wife in the frozen North tagging foxes for the Environmental Protection Agency. When an avalanche hits the group, the husband is killed and only by the pilot's perseverance is the wife saved. Two years later, the wife takes on a corporation which wants to extend an oil pipeline across the tundra above Juneau. She is convinced that this will cause an avalanche on the town. Of course, she is rejected by the corporation executives. She recruits the pilot to try to aid her, but with no success. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Did You Know?

Goofs

Near the end of the movie when the airplane with Neal and Lia is crashing, the first shot of it sliding down the mountain clearly shows the tail broken off, and we also see someone outside/above the cockpit waving their arms, but in the following shots the plane is shown with the fuselage still intact (minus wings only) sliding down the mountain and the cockpit is also still intact with both people inside and in their seats. This is also the way the plane ends up in the crevice. See more »

Worst FX Ever!
29 October 2001 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

After starring in a movie such as Vampires one would expect Thomas Ian Griffith to not make a movie like this. It's about an evil company that builds an oil pipeline thru a snowy mountain town and causes an avalanche when it goes haywire. The avalanche FX and the terribly interwoven stock footage are the worst I've ever seen. You'll have a hot seeing how awful it is and how anyone involved with the film could allow them to be so poor. See this on TV like I did. Don't rent it. It's seriously bad. 1/10
