- Flaky is responsible for all of the deaths in this episode.
- Flaky is referred to with a female pronoun in the Blurb version of the episode.
- This is one of the few episodes where the number of female characters outnumbers the number of male characters. The others are Stayin' Alive, Boo Do You Think You Are?, Royal Flush, and Take Your Seat.
- This is one of the three episodes to have the word ski in the title, the other two being Ski Patrol and Ski Kringle.
- This episode marks the first instance of Flaky crying. This would later happen again in From A to Zoo.

- When Disco Bear is buried up to his neck in the snow, Giggles' bow can be seen lying in the background (albeit, the bow is pink, not red).

- This episode shares some similarities to the episode Rink Hijinks:
- Flaky attempts to do an activity that involves wearing some kind of footwear.
- Disco Bear comes out of nowhere and rudely pushes Flaky into a direction that leads to her death.
- Both of Flaky's deaths are very bloody.
- Disco Bear is killed by Flaky shortly after she dies. Coincidentally, he is killed by something sharp in both episodes and with barely any blood.

- The YouTube thumbnails for this episode spoil the following:
- This is one of the few episodes in which a single character (Flaky) suffers throughout the majority of the episode.
- And also (debatably) the only episode in which a single character suffers throughout the entire episode.
- This is one of the few non-solo episodes in which all of the injuries happen to the same character. Most of the others either involve Sniffles and The Ants or Pop and Cub. The only other ones that are neither are Water You Wading For and Dream Job.
- This episode (arguably) marks Flaky's most torturous death so far.
- Flaky's scarf appears again in From Hero to Eternity.
- The satellite that passes by the top of the hill resembles the Soviet satellite Sputnik 1.
- The moral means to embark on an undertaking with as much effort and determination as possible.
- Flaky's first injury is similar to Handy's third injury in Shard at Work.
- Disco Bear's death is similar to Mime's death in The Wrong Side of the Tracks, as both deaths involve getting impaled with nails stuck in a wood plank.
- Kenn said that Flaky's death was the hardest death to animate in the series.
