Two guys leave their dead-end Motown jobs and head to Aspen where they hire on as ski instructors. For the ladies man of the two (TJ), the new arena is loaded with possibilities. He's soon to gather the glances of a wealthy snow queen who wants him to set up house with her. The second fella (Dex) gets involved in some drug-ring activity and teeters toward losing his job. Training to enter a big ski race, they get caught up in a deadly avalanche, killing Dex and sending TJ on a soul-searching crusade where he discovers there's more to life than sun, snow, and sex.
