Continuity mistake: When the rescue team are jumping from the helicopter to the side of the mountain, the chopper suddenly swings causing Monique to dive for cover. When she dives to the floor there is nothing around her only snow and ice, yet in the following shot when the propeller blades are close to her, a large rock has appeared to her right which wasn't there in the previous shot.

Factual error: Nitroglycerin does not react with sunlight, nor does it boil in sunlight.

Peter: Can you climb?
Monique: Peter wants to know if I can climb.
Skip: Worst I ever seen. Couldn't climb a ladder.
Peter: You're that good, huh?
Monique: Yes... But it was a very tall ladder.
Monique: Cyril! Cyril, are you there? Cyril! Damn it, you answer me.
Cyril Bench: Nag, nag, nag. They always bloody nag.
Monique: You're sick.
