    Default 70s-80s science thriller movie with heat ray and... skiing?

    I'm trying to remember the name of a science fiction thriller movie from probably the 70s or 80s. Maybe late 60s at the outside. The bad guy had a heat ray of some sort. The setting is an otherwise normal Earth for the time period of the movie.

    I remember the climactic scene

    involving the hero skiing while dodging the heat ray. The hero or one of the hero's allies reveals a hidden mirror as the hero skis past, reflecting the heat ray back towards the villain.

    80s movie involving skiing... Was there a youth center in danger, but any chance? Maybe someone owed two dollars?

    This almost sounds like James Bond, but I don't recall anything like that specific scene.

    IIRC A View To A Kill, On Her Magestys Secret Service, For Your Eyes Only, and The World Is Not Enough all have ski scenes, but no heat rays, just normal rifles.

    The Living Daylights has a "snowy conditions chase scene" plus a heat ray - but Bond's the one using the heat ray. Can't recall if any of his enemies skied during that scene.

    Definitely not. They were sliding down on a cello case, and unarmed.*

    I'm nowhere near as big a Bond fan as I used to be, but I'm still upset Dalton only got two movies.

    *ETA: er, Bond and the cellist assassin/defector were on the cello case, that is. Regardless, it would have been a notable part to mention if it was the case, I'd think.
