Ski School 2 is a 1994 comedy film directed by David Mitchell and starring Dean Cameron. Its plot concerns a fictional ski school. The first film in the series, Ski School, also starred Cameron and was written by Mitchell.

Plot[edit | edit source]

When Dave Marshak (Dean Cameron) learns his ex-girlfriend is getting married, he returns to ski school to stop it.

Cast[edit | edit source]

Production[edit | edit source]

Ski School 2 was credited with being written by Jay Naples. However it has been speculated Naples is just a pseudonym for director David Mitchell, who wrote the first Ski School film.[1] Indeed the name Jay Naples does not have any other writing or film credits listed on IMDB.[2]

Filming took place in Vancouver, British Columbia and on location at Whistler, British Columbia.[3]. It was also notable for being the film debut of both Bil Dwyer and Will Sasso.

Reflecting on why he agreed to star in the Ski School series, Dean Cameron recalled: "I wish the movies were more high profile. They offered it to me – and the script had some stuff in it that was subversive for the time. And I said to the producer and the writer, ‘This movie is so stupid, we will have a great time making it‘. We had a very good time doing that movie.”[4]

Stuart Fratkin, who co-starred as Fitz Fitzgerald in the first Ski School, was not asked reprise his role in the sequel because: "they couldn’t afford both me and Dean."[5]

Skiing stunt work was done by Shane Szocs, who in 2006 was named to Powder Magazine's list of 48 Skiers Who Shaped Our Sport.[6]

Release[edit | edit source]

The film was released direct-to-video on February 21, 1994. A DVD was released by Screen Media on December 28, 2004 in pan and scan format.[7]

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia paid homage to the Ski School series in Season 11 Episode 3, having Dean Cameron guest star as a burnt out 'party dude' living on the ski slopes.[8]
