Bull Mountain, Alaska, is a no frills ski resort, and the staff is a bunch of partying snowboard bums. The late founder, Papa Muntz, was famed for skiing with his butt exposed, and in fact is so memorialized by a statue. But his son, Ted, plans to sell the resort to hotshot ski mogul John Majors, who starts turning it into a slick resort, which of course has no room for most of the staff. The exception is Rick, the most serious of the bunch. But there's a complication: Rick met Majors' stepdaughter Anna on vacation in Mexico, and he's never gotten over a crush he had on her, even though she's about to marry a great guy, and Rick is also fiercely loyal to his friends.Written by

The character of Barry is played by Todd Richards, a professional snowboarder and member of the 1998 U.S. Olympic snowboarding team, and is probably the most capable member of the cast on a snowboard. However, in the film, he never leaves his wheelchair. See more »

I was there. Yeah, it was called the '80s. Ford was President, Nixon was in the White House and FDR was running this country into the ground. I was bummin' in a hole-in-a-wall town in what is now called Utah. Some fella from Colorado shows up, starts making so called "improvements", right? Before we knew what hit us, the streets are running with latte. It got so bad that a fella that liked to, you know... smoke a little grass or drink a little ripple. Crow like a rooster, maybe challenge the ...

A number of scenes were deleted from the final print some of which include:
Stumpy telling Pig Pen a story about how he invented the snowboard by nailing his feet to a two-by-four to get down a steep mountain.
A long scene showing another story of the death of Papa Muntz where after he talked with Rick about building a ski lift to Hangman's Peak, Papa went into the woods to "take a dump" when he had a heart attack, died and skied down the mountain, his backside bare, and everyone witnessed it which made Papa Muntz a legend.
Anthony putting a bicycle lock on a drunken Luke's neck when he's passed out, and Luke arriving for work at the lodge asking for the key.
Luke talking with Anne about Rick during the time Inga is on the motorized bull.
Stumpy pigging out on the cookout during the investors meeting, and saying: "how rude!"
An extended closing speach given by Stumpy to the camera about the end of the story when another person at the bar ask Lance who is Stumpy talking to.
Being only one of two people in the world to see this movie twice in the theaters makes me perhaps what one would consider an Out Cold expert. After buying the movie on DVD (available now in all self-respecting stores) I have enjoyed it four more times, and I have to say that not only does this movie not deserve the current ranking in the 4's, but the movie is far better then it is being portrayed. Out Cold is part teenage-gross-out laugh-fest, part Ode to Casablanca, part kick-ass snowboarding. This movie is rich in a deep, philosophical plot, in which our protagonist Rick Rambis, is locked into a bitter war to keep his life and his town. Bull Mountain has been his home forever, and when the departed owner's son decides to sell the mountain (to the Six-Million-Dollar-Man Lee Majors, playing John Majors-no relation) Rick and his n'er-do-well comrades must conform to the new ruler. Majors foresees the Black Diamond in the Rough as the next Aspen, and begins to change the quaint heritage of the land to conform to his new vision, Snow Nook. Rick and his friends decide to rebel and take back the mountain. And if the rich plot is not enough, it also has Victoria Silvstadt, former Playmate of the year, Zach Galifianakis, a great comedian who gets his helmut stuck in a hot tub, and a cast of tens of...well...tens of extras. The movie was unfortunately passed over at the Oscars for movies that did not have anyone having sex with a hot tub, that didn't have any playmates, that didn't have the Weezer song "Island in the Sun", nor did it have the greatest words of wisdom ever in a movie, "No regrets, that's my motte. That and 'Everybody Wang Chung Tonight'".
