Bull Mountain, Alaska, is a no frills ski resort, and the staff is a bunch of partying snowboard bums. The late founder, Papa Muntz, was famed for skiing with his butt exposed, and in fact is so memorialized by a statue. But his son, Ted, plans to sell the resort to hotshot ski mogul John Majors, who starts turning it into a slick resort, which of course has no room for most of the staff. The exception is Rick, the most serious of the bunch. But there's a complication: Rick met Majors' stepdaughter Anna on vacation in Mexico, and he's never gotten over a crush he had on her, even though she's about to marry a great guy, and Rick is also fiercely loyal to his friends.Written by

A number of scenes were deleted from the final print some of which include:
Stumpy telling Pig Pen a story about how he invented the snowboard by nailing his feet to a two-by-four to get down a steep mountain.
A long scene showing another story of the death of Papa Muntz where after he talked with Rick about building a ski lift to Hangman's Peak, Papa went into the woods to "take a dump" when he had a heart attack, died and skied down the mountain, his backside bare, and everyone witnessed it which made Papa Muntz a legend.
Anthony putting a bicycle lock on a drunken Luke's neck when he's passed out, and Luke arriving for work at the lodge asking for the key.
Luke talking with Anne about Rick during the time Inga is on the motorized bull.
Stumpy pigging out on the cookout during the investors meeting, and saying: "how rude!"
An extended closing speach given by Stumpy to the camera about the end of the story when another person at the bar ask Lance who is Stumpy talking to.
Although it may seem like the same old crap, snowboard, hot chicks and funny jokes actually WORK!
Ok, I know everyone think this movie is idiot, predictable and has its stupid jokes. I could be with you, I dont like this kind of movies, specially when it gets as bad as "The Sweetest Thing" , "The New Guy" and others from the genre...
But I am here to say that this is one funny movie! The Snow boards sequences are super! We don't care for the acting in movies like this, since we laugh and feel good, it's all right. I am asking you to not be led by the critics, because people sometimes forget to watch a movie as it is supposed to be, do yourself a favor and don't do that.
I recommend you to watch this movie and have a laugh with your friends. But i must say it is not great, there are no mesmerizing jokes, but still got its charm...
My rate would be 6 out of 10, but that blondy , oh man, she deserves a nice star so my rating is : 7 / 10
