Part of Hallmark Channel's COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS the #1 Most Treasured Holiday Destination by Television Viewers!
An ambitious development executive is sent from sunny Arizona to frigid Maine to overhaul a charming old lodge, never expecting a warm Christmas welcome will melt away her frosty attitude in the World Premiere of "Let It Snow," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie premiering Holiday 2013. The film, starring Candace Cameron Bure ("Puppy Love"), Emmy(R) nominee Alan Thicke ("The L.A. Complex") and Jesse Hutch ("True Justice"), follows a father and daughter who discover the importance of holiday tradition and its profound effect on family. "Let It Snow" is part of the Hallmark Channel's annual COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS, the #1 most treasured holiday destination by television viewers.
When Falcon Resorts acquires family-owned Snow Valley Lodge from retiring owners Karla (Gabrielle Rose, "Anything But Christmas") and Paul (Dan Willmott, "The Circuit"), driven executive Stephanie Beck (Bure) must spend the week before Christmas in Maine, preparing a proposal on the property's renovations. Determined to impress Falcon's president, her detached father Ted (Thicke), Stephanie reluctantly departs her warm Arizona home to immerse herself in the lodge's property and decide how to change it to fit the hip, young Falcon brand. While preparing to rebuild the Snow Valley Lodge from the ground up, Stephanie butts heads with her property guide, Brady Lewis (Hutch), Karla and Paul's son, who has decided to leave his family's business over creative differences with his dad.
A self-defined Grinch, Stephanie begins her stay at Snow Valley Lodge immune to Christmas sentiment. But as the lodge's festive traditions provide the Christmas Stephanie never had growing up with her distant father, Stephanie finds herself enjoying every minute. To complicate her professional duties even further, the combative feelings she felt toward Brady turn into romantic ones. With Stephanie's newfound Christmas spirit and unexpected holiday romance, she begins to question Falcon's overhaul. As her Christmas Eve deadline approaches, Stephanie must weigh her loyalty to her new friends against the complicated relationship with her father and decide if she should transform the lodge into a new winter hot spot, or embrace tradition and let it snow!
