Avalanche Sharks is a 2013 Canadian horror film directed By Scott Wheeler and written By Keith Shaw.[1] It stars Kate Nauta, Emily Addison, Alexander Mendeluk, Mika Brooks and Jack Cullison.[2][3]


Following upon the success of Sharknado, Syfy announced a sequel and the internet was flooded with suggestions toward similar killer-shark topics.[4][5] In October 2013, they announced a film with a working title of Sharkalanche as a sequel to Sand Sharks.[6][7][8] The film was to star Brooke Hogan, but when Hogan had a scheduling conflict, Kate Nauta was brought aboard for the role of Diana.[9][10]


After a snowboarder inadvertently starts a major avalanche, the moving snowfield uncovers and wakes a prehistoric "snow shark" which had been trapped beneath. The shark develops an appetite for human flesh and the staff at the Twin Pines Ski Resort begins getting reports of missing people and strange finned creatures moving under the snow. Fearing financial loss on what is their busiest event day of the year, the Bikini Snow Day, the Twin Pines management tries to hide news of the missing skiers and sightings of strange creatures. Disaster strikes as the bikini-clad snow bunnies one-by-one become meals for the shark. The avalanche has cut off the roads trapping all within the Twin Pines Valley. The local sheriff allies with snowboarders to track down the monster.[11]
