Ski School is a 1991 comedy film directed by Damian Lee and starring Dean Cameron. Its plot concerns a fictional ski school. A sequel, Ski School 2, followed in 1994, also starring Cameron.


A hard-partying section of the school, Section 8, led by Dave Marshak (Dean Cameron) must face a more buttoned-up section of the school led by Reid Janssens (Mark Thomas Miller) to save their jobs. They recruit hotshot newcomer, John Roland (Tom Bresnahan) to help them win an end-of-the-season skiing competition and also play a series of hilarious pranks on Reid and his cronies (especially, Derek and Eric) along the way.


Production notes[edit]

Ski School was filmed in Los Angeles, California and on location in Mount Hood, Oregon and Whistler, British Columbia.

The movie's soundtrack features two songs by the band Lock Up, a late-80s musical outfit featuring Tom Morello on guitar, pre-dating his Rage Against the Machine fame.


The film was released theatrically in the United States on January 11, 1991, although released in Canada the previous year by Cineplex Odeon. Later that year it was released on videocassette in the United States by HBO Video. In 2007, MGM released the movie on DVD. Despite the fact that the back of the DVD says the film is presented in widescreen, it is actually presented in pan and scan.

Homage was paid to the film franchise by It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia in Season 11 Episode 3 where Dean Cameron cameos as a burnt out 'party dude' living on the ski slopes.
