Premieres Saturday, January 27 at 9 PM ET/PT on Hallmark Channel
After suffering an embarrassing and public loss when she was younger, former professional skier Kat (Kristy Swanson) has set her roots in her small hometown, working in the Heart of the Mountain ski shop and as a ski aid at Bliss Mountain. Kat prepares for Bliss Mountain’s Winterfest, which she and the rest of the residents, hope will drum up business for the town.
Winterfest brings widowed father Ty (Dean Cain) and his daughter Anna (Lizzie Boys) from New York to train with Maddy (Lucie Guest) – a national skiing champion and Kat’s former teammate. Anna quickly realizes that Maddy’s aggressive coaching style does not work for her. Instead, having received some helpful advice from Kat, Anna turns to her for coaching. Kat agrees to coach Anna if Ty, an advertising executive, helps her with marketing for Winterfest.
While training Anna through unconventional methods, Kat spends time with Ty, who learns to dial back the pressure on Anna. A spark forms between Kat and Ty as they share life stories over dinners and Winterfest preparation. Kat dreads his return to New York but listens to advice from her friend Lindsay (Laura Bertram) and just enjoys spending time with him. As the Winterfest activities and story unfolds, might Ty reveal a surprise that gives Kat new hope for the future?
