Here’s the synopsis for the movie from Hallmark: “Former professional skier Kat works as a ski aid and ski shop worker at Bliss Mountain, where she prepares for a Winterfest to drum up business for the quaint town. Widowed father Ty and his daughter Anna come from New York to train with ski champion (and Kat’s former teammate) Maddy, and quickly connect with Kat when Maddy’s coaching style proves to be too aggressive for Anna.”
Another synopsis reads: “After suffering an embarrassing and public loss when she was younger, former professional skier Kat works as a ski aid and ski shop worker at Bliss Mountain, where she prepares for a Winterfest to drum up business for the quaint town. Winterfest brings widowed father Ty and his daughter Anna from New York to train with ski champion (and Kat’s former teammate) Maddy. Anna quickly realizes that Maddy’s aggressive coaching style does not work for her, and turns to Kat for coaching. A spark forms between Kat and Ty as Kat coaches Anna and prepares for Winterfest with Ty.”

He’s a Hallmark favorite, starring in many movies including Broadcasting Christmas, A Wish Come True, and The Runaway.
Kristy Swanson stars as Kat. Her career really took off when she played Buffy on Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the movie that predated Joss Whedon’s popular series.)
