While shooting on location in the Colorado mountains, the temperatures would rarely rise above five degrees during the day and would drop well below zero during the evening. In fact, while shooting the scene where Gar and Tony talk in the hot tub the actors' wet hair would actually start to freeze during filming.

There doesn't appear to be a fireplace or pit in the barn that Gar and Ellen take refuge in for the night. They appear to burn wood on the open dirt floor for warmth. Exterior shots of the barn show no chimney nor any smoke that should be visible coming from the many cracks in the walls and probably from possible holes in the roof. Revealing that there is actually nothing burning inside this barn at anytime and the camp fire scenes are on a controlled stage set.
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.
