Get ready for nonstop action. Schuss down slopes with two drunken anti-heroes: Samuel, the rugged Colorado skier, and Erik, a Norwegian fisherman. The men are given a mission that exceeds their integrity: to capture secret weapon plans from the Nazis.

During their flight from the Nazis and time spent with the Lapps, Samuel discovers that the Shaman has the secret papers stolen from the Nazis -- and conspires with Erik to steal them from his mysterious host and return them to the allied forces in exchange for a rich reward. The subsequent action, which encompasses a colorful mix of winter warfare and weird, ...
