Ski School is a 1990 comedy movie that follows a group of ski instructors who work at a ski resort in British Columbia. The main character is Dave Marshak, played by Dean Cameron, a fun-loving but somewhat unprofessional ski instructor who is known for his wild antics on the slopes. He is best friends with his colleague, the more responsible and serious-minded Rick, played by Tom Bresnahan.
The two friends find themselves in competition with a group of snobbish ski instructors from a rival school, led by the arrogant Reid Janssens, played by Patrick Labyorteaux. The rival school is known for producing Olympic champions and their instructors view themselves as superior to the ragtag group employed by the resort.
The main plot of the movie revolves around a skiing competition between the two schools. The organizers of the competition, hoping to make it more exciting, decide to change the rules to include a freestyle event, which the rival school is expected to dominate. Dave and Rick fear that their school will lose, and their jobs will be in jeopardy if they don't find a way to win the competition.
Along the way, the group of instructors engages in various hijinks and misadventures. They participate in a ski race that involves skiing down a mountain with a bikini-clad woman on their backs, they engage in a drunken snowball fight, and they try to win the affection of a sexy new instructor who has just arrived at the resort.
As the competition draws nearer, Dave and Rick come to the realization that they are going to have to learn some new tricks if they want to beat the rival school. They enlist the help of a former freestyle skiing champion, who teaches them a series of unconventional and dangerous maneuvers that they will need to pull off if they want to have any chance of winning.
On the day of the competition, both schools try their best to impress the judges with their skiing skills. The competition is heated, with lots of tension and drama as both sides try to outdo each other. The final freestyle event is the most exciting part of the competition, and it's up to Dave and Rick to perform the risky maneuvers they learned in order to win.
In the end, it's a close contest, but Dave and Rick manage to pull off an amazing performance that wins the admiration and respect of the judges. The rival school is humbled, and the instructors at the resort celebrate their victory with a wild party.
Overall, Ski School is an entertaining and lighthearted movie that is perfect for fans of '80s and '90s comedies. It's full of goofy humor, ski-related gags, and attractive young actors having a good time on the slopes. While the plot is fairly predictable and the characters are somewhat stereotypical, the movie succeeds in delivering plenty of laughs and enjoyable escapist entertainment.
