In this light-weight Disney family fare, Dean Jones plays Johnny Baxter, who -- along with his wife Sue (Nancy Olsen) and his two kids, Chris (Kathleen Cody) and Richard (Johnny Whittaker) -- decides to leave the New York City rat-race for the clean air and easy living of the Colorado ski country. Baxter has inherited a decaying Gothic mansion and, with the love of his family and a little bit of money, he converts the old house into a popular ski lodge. While preparing his lodge for the tourists and ski bums, Baxter has to deal with a few plumbing problems, a scheming banker (Keenan Wynn), and a grizzled old miner (Harry Morgan). In typical Disney fashion, the plot culminates in a wild, slapstick snowmobile race.

    This is one of the best movies for families. The plot is funny and action packed! I have watched it for many years every winter with my family. This is a must buy. One year I bought it for each family and put in a note, "This is Maw Maw's favorite movie." Please take the time to watch this great family movie!

    Dean Jones and Disney team up again for a fun and funny film. A man who feels like a cog in a machine thinks he the luckiest man alive when he inherits a hotel. But he soon finds that his luck may not be that great when the hotel has more than enough problems for his whole family.

    The funniest moments in Snowball Express are the incredible ski scenes with Dean Jones ski backwards down the mountain. It's classic Disney family fun. You may think it's a bit dated but it is really funny as you go further into the story.
