Movie Summary

Corey Haim, Jim Varney, Brigitte Nielsen and SCTV's Joe Flaherty star in SNOWBOARD ACADEMY, a slapstick free-for-all about the riotous rivalry between snobby skiers and knuckle-dragging snowboarders. Haim stars as Chris "The Wizard" Barry, the younger son of a ski resort owner. When his out-of-control boarder buds take over the slopes, The Wizard's resentful big brother challenges him to start a snowboard academy that will turn bumbling beginners into race-winners in just two weeks. With a slapstick subplot about an inept safety engineer (Varney) and a scheming gold-digger (Nielsen), plus awesome airborne footage, SNOWBOARD ACADEMY is one wild ride!
