Jughead has worn a slick vinyl suit so when Ethel goes to grab him she misses and gets their ski instructor instead. Archie evades both Betty and Veronica by jumping on the back of a snowmobile. The driver is Midge, who wants to take Archie because he can dance and Moose can't. At the dance Jughead sees a fantastic buffet but can't get in without a date. But he's not as bad off as Archie who's on the run again, this time from Moose.
