    When an "I'm-just-makin'-money" developer plops his new ski lodge at the foot of a mountain, the locals warn him about snowslides. So it's not too long before a gigantic avalanche buries the lodge and all the snow bunnies in it. Rock Hudson plays the ski lodge owner and Mia Farrow is his couch-hopping wife in this disaster film. ~ Phillip Erlewine, Rovi

A winter wonderland becomes a nightmare of chaos and destruction, when an avalanche smashes into a ski resort. Now a holiday vacation will become a struggle for survival. Once producer Irwin Allen became Hollywood s master of disaster in the 70s by cranking out spectacles like The Towering Inferno and The Poseidon Adventure, legendary cult producer, Roger Corman (Death Race 2000) finally decided to produce his own disaster film, making his own special contribution to the unique genre.
