In this made for TV film, an enormous and angry bigfoot creature begins to terrorize a Colorado Ski Resort during a winter carnival, by eating several skiers. At first everyone insists it is just a bear, until ski patrolman Tony Rill sees a white shadowy beastly shape disappearing into the woods. Although Tony's grandmother Mrs. Carrie Rill, who owns the Ski Resort and the town sheriff, Sheriff Paraday disagree, it soon becomes clear when the creature finally attacks the town.

Early in the movie, ski patroller Buster Smith goes out on his own to search for Jennifer a second time (against the wishes of his boss - Tony Rill). While out searching, Buster wipes out on the ski hill and as he falls, his hat and goggles and both skis come off. In the next scene as he is sliding/rolling down the hill, his hat miraculously reappears on his head and one ski becomes reattached. The following scene shows Buster hanging precariously over the edge of a drop with no hat or goggles (or skis) present as it should be. See more
Ellen, you where right. Coming up here was a dumb idea.
I never said it was a dumb idea. I just thought you might feel better getting a job outside the ski business.
This is all I know how to do.
You know what I think, Gar? You really don't want a job. This is just some damn excuse to back off and still feel right about it!
The National Broadcasting Company decided it would be a little violent to have a skier fall from the ski lift and break a leg and then become a victim to the Snowbeast. In this scene, it was where the Winter Games took place. Writer Joseph Stefano and director Herb Wallerstien changed the scene to have the Snowbeast attack the town's gymnasium were they are holding a skiing contest for the snow champions. The fall from ski lift scene appears in some other versions of this film. See more
