Trivia

Movie was filmed at Mont Tremblant in Quebec, Canada. The mountain layout and buildings in the movie were the originals from 1950 and stayed until mid 90's when the mountain was purchased by Intrawest and re-developed to what it is today. The only buildings that are still there today are the Church and the Lodge where the actors film several scenes outside as well as inside. All the lifts and other buildings are no longer there.

Wayne Rogers as Daredevil on Ski slopes..irony is Sonny Bono's supporting role
2 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

The TV film aired in 1980 and I remember it well. Wayne Rogers is a daredevil married to Adrienne Barbeau who he separates from to hit the mountains (I think it was Aspen). He meets some horny women like the German Elke Sommer and has a friendship with a pianist Sonny Bono and has a one-night stand with Bono's girl (in one scene she takes her top off says "I don't want to be alone tonight" and goes into Rogers bedroom, Rogers eagerly following.)

Rogers enters the suicidal slolum (or whatever it's called) race with an emotionally desparate partner. For Sonny Bono to be in this film about daredevils in self-danger makes his ski-accident death that much more ironic.
