Synopsis

Brian Davis, an American music student enrolled at a European university, teaches skiing at an Austrian resort to pay for his studies. Max, the lodge manager, stipulates in the instructors' contracts that they must entertain the female guests during the evenings. The employees have wired a bed in one of the guest rooms to a pinball machine, and while one of the group tries to seduce the occupant of the room, the others place bets on the amount of time that will elapse before the machine registers a "tilt." Susan Halsey, a Californian, arrives at the lodge and becomes the center of the game. Brian, who has not joined in the competition, falls in love with her. He and Toni Brandt, the head instructor, wager their season's pay on who will win her affections. Susan, repelled by Brian's aggressive attitude, becomes attracted to Toni, but eventually she learns of the game and discovers that Toni is merely interested in winning the bet. Brian and Toni agree on a ski jumping contest to determine the winner. Brian competes using inferior equipment and is injured when he jumps. Susan becomes convinced of his sincerity and realizes that she loves him.
