Snowboard Academy is a classic winter sports comedy movie from 1997, directed by John Shepphird and starring Jim Varney, Corey Haim, Brigitte Nielsen, and Joe Flaherty. The movie follows a group of misfit snowboarders as they attend the Snowboard Academy, a prestigious school for promising athletes, in hopes of honing their skills and making a name for themselves in the sport.

The plot revolves around the main character, Chris Barry (Corey Haim), a talented but rebellious snowboarder who gets kicked off his team and lands himself in trouble with the law. To avoid jail time, Chris and his friends are given the chance to attend the Snowboard Academy, a winter sports school where they can train with Olympic gold medalist, Mark Rider (Jim Varney), and his team of instructors.

At the academy, Chris and his friends encounter a diverse group of characters, each with their own unique personalities and quirks. There's the rich and snobbish Ingrid (Brigitte Nielsen), who looks down on everyone else and thinks she's better than everyone else. There's also the eccentric and over-the-top Principal Smedley (Joe Flaherty), who's more interested in promoting the academy than teaching his students.

Through a series of comical mishaps and misadventures, Chris and his friends learn valuable lessons about teamwork, perseverance, and sportsmanship. They face numerous challenges, including rigorous training sessions, injury-impacted competitions, and a showdown against Ingrid and her team, who will stop at nothing to win.

As the story unfolds, Chris learns to control his rebellious nature and becomes a natural leader to his friends. Along the way, he also finds himself falling for the beautiful and talented Robin (Gabrielle Miller), who not only shares his passion for snowboarding but also his enthusiasm for life.

With a soundtrack featuring some of the hottest alternative music of the 90s, Snowboard Academy is a fun-filled, action-packed movie that captures the essence of winter sports culture. With plenty of laughs, thrills, spills, and chills, this movie is perfect for anyone who loves to snowboard or simply enjoys a good comedy with a heartwarming message.

Snowboard Academy is a 1997 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 28 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 2.5.
