Plot Outline

Pretty tomboy Kim Matthews, 19, used to be a champion skateboarder - but now she's stuck in a dead end job trying to support her Dad. Opportunity comes knocking in the form of a catering job in the one of the most exclusive chalets in the Alps. At first, Kim's baffled by this bizarre new world of posh people, champagne and skiing - but then she discovers snowboarding, and the chance to win some much-needed prize money at the big end-of-season competition. But before she can become a champion again, Kim's going to have to dig deep to overcome her fears. Hard enough, without the complicating factor of Jonny, her handsome - though spoken for - boss.  (courtesy IMDB)

What the Critics Are Saying


Chalet Girl is possibly the first British rom com since Working Title's heyday that won't make you want to stick pins in your eyes, will actually make you laugh, and wasn't made by Working Title. (Film 4)


A fluffy little rom-com that could have been better, but will do nicely until something more daring comes along. (Daily Mail)


Somehow, it ends up slaloming along just fine, and Tamsin Egerton continues to corner the market in Sloaney hauteur with extra hot sauce. (Daily Telegraph)
