It’s never too early for Christmas. This seems to be a mantra for Hallmark Channel. They start their Countdown to Christmas holiday movies in October as well as featuring weekly Christmas movies year round. During the month of July both Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries have holiday movie marathons including the premiere of a brand-new Christmas movie, Crashing Through the Snow.
What is Crashing Through the Snow about?
As the parents of two girls, Maggie (Amy Acker) and her ex-husband Jeff (Kristian Bruun) have always been friends first. When Jeff’s new girlfriend, Kate (Brooke Nevin) invites Maggie along on their ski vacation, she jumps at the chance to spend the holidays with her daughters. She soon feels like a third wheel on this family vacation until Kate’s brother, Sam (Warren Christie) shows up announced.
Always in his sister’s shadow, Sam convinces Maggie to team up to give her daughters the best Christmas ever – and the chance for them to both shine in the spotlight, but neither of them is prepared for the challenges of a blended family or their attraction to each other.
