Kristy Swanson (“Operation Cupcake,” “Storm Rider”) and Dean Cain (“Hit the Floor,” “Broadcasting Christmas”) star in “Winter’s Dream,” a new, original movie premiering Saturday, January 27 (9 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Channel. Part of the network’s popular, annual “Winterfest” programming event, Lizzie Boys (Dead Shack) and Lucie Guest (“The Mistletoe Inn”) also star.
About The Movie:
After suffering an embarrassing and public loss when she was younger, former professional skier Kat (Swanson) 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 (Cain) and his daughter Anna (Boys) from New York to train with ski champion (and Kat’s former teammate) Maddy (Guest).
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. When a fall down the hill causes Anna to rethink the race and plan to go home early with Ty, though, Kat may lose both her new relationship and her rekindled confidence as a coach. On race day, Kat, Ty and Anna must all look deep within to conquer their fears and push forward.
