Sports reporter Douglas Sawyer sustained a devastating loss in Iraq and no longer cares about his career, much less his future. At the insistence of friends and family, he becomes the first civilian participant in Ski-Hab, a winter sports rehabilitation program for war veterans and amputees. After he discovers that pushy Lyn Hill is actually former ski star Brooklyn Raine, his instincts sense the perfect story line to thrust him back into the journalism world. Despite interference from other skiers, the local cab driver, and Brooklyn herself, Doug is determined to chronicle the life of the former ski champ.
But when their secrets are revealed, each will face a hard choice. Will Brooklyn and Doug abandon the easy trail to take a chance on the more challenging slope to love?
