The scene where the snow beast attacks the town hall during the snow queen ceremony was written in to replace a previously scripted and filmed attack scene that was deemed too violent to be aired on television.
I understand she was a guest at your ski lodge. I was hoping you could help me idenify her.
Tony Rill: I must have seen her somewhere. Maybe I will recognize her when I see her face.
Sheriff Paraday: She does not have one.
Early in the movie, ski patroller Buster Smith goes out on his own to search for Jennifer a second time (against the wishes of his boss - Tony Rill). While out searching, Buster wipes out on the ski hill and as he falls, his hat and goggles and both skis come off. In the next scene as he is sliding/rolling down the hill, his hat miraculously reappears on his head and one ski becomes reattached. The following scene shows Buster hanging precariously over the edge of a drop with no hat or goggles (or skis) present as it should be.
The National Broadcasting Company decided it would be a little violent to have a skier fall from the ski lift and break a leg and then become a victim to the Snowbeast. In this scene, it was where the Winter Games took place. Writer Joseph Stefano and director Herb Wallerstien changed the scene to have the Snowbeast attack the town's gymnasium were they are holding a skiing contest for the snow champions. The fall from ski lift scene appears in some other versions of this film.
