Will Ferrell is opening up about his recent debacle in Switzerland.

The actor and his co-star Julia Louis-Dreyfus stopped by "Late Night With Seth Myers" to promote their new movie "Downhill," reported Just Jared.

Both discussed the unexpected wintry adventures they experienced while filming the comedy.

The 52-year-old actor and 'SNL' vet shared a hilarious story about how he got lost on location.

“The second resort we were in, called Ischgl, shares the border,” Ferrell said. “There were little signs, like, ‘This way, Switzerland.’ I’m, like, let’s do it. So I’m by myself, I’m skiing down, I was like, this is so lovely and, like, but I don’t see a chair lift back at all. And I end up in a small town in Switzerland. Gone for, like, three hours. I have to figure out, like, a bus and a tram. I had no money.”

Ferrell joked, “The Swiss are nasty. To get cornered by a bunch of Swiss, chanting at me. Pelting me with Rolex watches. Hard chocolate candies. It was harrowing.”

Jim Rash, director and writer of the movie, joined the actor and actress for their interview. Rash seemed to have hoped for a different outcome from the situation.

“We were actually upset that he came back. We were like, we did it. But he found his way back, so, you do what you can,” Rash joked.

Back in December, a trailer was released for the movie. The comedy legends both play a married couple on a family vacation with their two kids when disaster strikes.

In the midst of enjoying their ski adventure in the Alps, an avalanche strikes and Ferrell’s character (Pete) abandons his family to get himself out of harm’s way.

"Downhill" opened in theaters on Friday.
