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

The billboard showing an artist's conception of Lee Majors' new Snownook resort featured a hotel that was based on the Alyeska Prince hotel in Girdwood, Alaska, which was built in 1994. See more »
In one of the last scenes of the movie, when Rick and Jenny are talking atop a mountain, a sign can be seen in the background that says "Hangman's Peak". When the shot changes to an aerial view of them descending, the sign is gone. See more »

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.
Out Cold is one of my favorite movies. It's not intelligent, the acting isn't anything special and the plot is sub-par. But it's hilarious, and as a snowboarder wildly entertaining. I watch it in the summer when I miss the season, in the fall when I'm waiting for the season, in the winter when I'm NOT snowboarding, and in the spring when the season is ending. There is so much truth to the movie in some aspects that it just feels right. The movie is so funny in so many little ways, and if you open your mind and are willing to accept it for what it is, I think you'll love it as well. It has a great soundtrack featuring a LOT of Jack Johnson, some Weezer, Sum 41, other stuff, all of which is good. Jason London is great as Rick Rambis, Zach Galifinakis is hilarious as Luke and whoever plays Pigpen does a great job of acting dumber then you would think anyone could actually be. You'll either love it or hate it, but if you snowboard or like to have a good time, I think it will be the former.
