Damn, I probably should have exited the game all the way before copying it. I'm already pretty far past that spot and moving fast but I could try again at the next point I see it save if anyone wants me too.
If you are stuck on the snow monster and can't kill him and he just pulls away from the harpoons and they are still there as if hooked into the creature. Then you need to reduce all your graphics settings down to low and put it into windowed mode. This has worked for me and many others.
