A competition is held between two brothers on their father's ski slopes one is a skier the other a snowboarder. The competition would determine if snowboarders could be allowed to be a part the ski patrol.
Rudy Rupak was the producer of the first movie about snowboarding (even though he himself was a skier and not a snowboarder). Rudy Rupak was 26 years old at the time he created this project to be both a video game and movie. The script, written by Rudy Rupak and James Salisko, was considered too edgy and made reference to things like X games and extreme sports. Columbia Pictures however toned down what would have been a PG-13 movie into a PG one given the pressures of an election year when Bob Dole was bent on chastising Hollywood for its alleged immorality. Scenes like peeing onto skiers from a chair lift, and skating on a blunt shape board were scrapped. Rupak's efforts to sell a videogame based on Snowboarding never materialized.
Rudy Rupak is currently being investigated by the FBI for fraud and embezzlement.
