From the box:
They’re The Patrol That’s Out Of Control.
The laughs are plentiful and the snow action faster than the men’s downhill, as the craziest group of skiers ever take to the slopes in Ski Patrol. Pops (Ray Walston) is the owner of the Snowy Peaks Lodge, a popular ski resort. His lease is up for renewal, but he’s not worried — his safety record is unblemished, in spite of the crew of misfits who make up his Ski Patrol, led by Jerry (Roger Rose) and Iceman (T.K. Carter). But unscrupulous land developer Maris (Martin Mull) has other devious plans — he wants to take over the lease from Pops and hires a blond ski hunk named Lance (Corby Timbrook) to sabotage the Ski Patrol’s efforts. It’s snow wonder as the Ski Patrol traverses and slaloms through the powder with breathtaking comic flair, as they try to save Pop’s mountain. Incredible aerial tricks, snowboarding and a spectacular skiing showdown all add to the excitement. Ski Patrol is a fun time for all seasons.
