Snowball Express (1972) Movie Description:

Dean Jones, Nancy Olson, Harry Morgan, Keenan Wynn and Johnnie Whittaker star in Walt Disney's 1972 production, Snowball Express. Jones plays Johnny Baxter, a man who leaves his secure 9-to-5 office job in New York City, relocates his family to rural Colorado to take ownership of an inherited "lucrative" resort hotel only to discover that "lucrative" is a bit of an exaggeration: in fact, the hotel is ramshackle at best, with major renovations needed.

Feeling he's made a terrible mistake, Baxter (Jones) comes upon an idea to turn the property and surrounding area into a ski lodge. Unable to secure financing, Baxter instead embarks on a series of schemes which miraculously work in his favor, and the ski lodge eventually becomes a reality.

Apparently snakebit but also possessing a horse-shoe, Baxter manages to survive a series of near disasters, including the predictable "snowmobile-gone-awry" downhill race, avalanches and the eccentric but lovable townspeople.
