Cliffhanger

Other mistake: When Gabe and the bad guy are fighting on the helicopter on the side of the cliff look carefully at the rotor shaft - you can clearly see that it has changed. Earlier when it was on the ground you see the shaft and the scissors on it. When it is upside down the scissors have vanished and the rotor shaft has a different look to it.

Other mistake: When the two goofy base jumpers are seen camping out in their tent, they have a large lantern and a big cooler underneath the lantern. These items are quite bulky and fairly heavy, hardly the kind of stuff that extreme base jumpers would carry around in their packs. In fact, that stuff would be really hard to fit into their packs at all.

Other mistake: After the stalactite kills the man, Gabe lets him down. Notice how there's no blood on it.

Other mistake: As Gabe (Sylvester Stallone) is being chased, he is seen stumbling and falling off several snowy terraces and hillsides. At one point, Gabe falls about ten feet, lands on a snowbed, and the entire snowbed literally "bounces" like a white, rubber pad.

Other mistake: When Walker shoots Travers on the ice, too much blood comes out on him in just one second.

Continuity mistake: When the jet crashes, we see a shot from below showing a large portion of it poking out over the cliff. We then cut to the parachutists, and when we cut back to the jet, we see that very nearly all of it is safely on rock.

Trivia: The stunt early on in the film where Eric Qualen and his team do the plane to plane transfer was performed by British stuntman Simon Crane. The stunt was performed at an altitude of 2.95 miles (4.75 km) and was the most expensive stunt ever performed costing £568,000(£1 million). Sly Stallone is said to have reduced his fee by that amount to ensure the stunt was made.

Question: How the did the cases carrying the money survive intact after being dropped from so high?

Answer: For one, they fell into snow which would have softened the blow. Also, as common in aviation or even just cases that are meant to contain valuables like money, they are designed to withstand impacts or attempts to break them open.

Wouldn't the bad guys have to spend what could be weeks trying to find the money if the cases were to break open?

Probably yes.
