Hot Dog…The Movie is a comedy ski film released in January 1984. The film went on to gross over $17 million and became one of the iconic comedies of the 1980s.
The film stars Patrick Houser as Harkin Banks, a young and ambitious freestyle skier from Idaho who is determined to prove himself in a freestyle skiing competition at Squaw Valley. Along the way he teams with a pack of fun-loving incorrigibles who called themselves the "Rat Pack" (whose leader, Dan O'Callahan is played by David Naughton), picks up an Austrian nemesis named Rudi (John Patrick Reger), and enters a love triangle with a pair of blondes, a young woman named Sunny (Tracy N. Smith) and the more mature Sylvia Fonda (played by 1982 Playboy Playmate of the Year Shannon Tweed in just her second major film role). The movie ends with a terrific extended race scene, all of the characters take part in a 'Chinese Downhill' to determine the real champion of the competition.

A film called Hot Dog… The Movie rings a bell (it might be the only ski/stag film). No, I don't think it was the skiing that inspired me to sign up at all, but the more the Hollywood promise that the après ski would follow the plot line of this ...
