Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Arriving in Switzerland as part of Ricky's professional tour of Europe, the Ricardos and the Mertzes find they have shown up in the wrong town -- and worse, the only local musicians available are members of a polka band. To mollify the angry Ricky (Desi Arnaz), Lucy (Lucille Ball) suggests that they accompany Fred (William Frawley) and Ethel (Vivian Vance) on a hike in the Alps. Unfortunately, an avalanche traps the two couples in a deserted mountain cabin. Certain that they are doomed to death by starvation, the hapless hikers begin making confessions to one another -- hilarious and heartbreaking all at once. Happily, rescue is at hand -- and you'll never guess who the rescuers are.
