Chalet Girl movie scene

Felicity Jones (l.) takes it to the Alps in Chalet Girl.

Adorable Felicity Jones (The Tempest) stars in the snowy 2011 romantic comedy film Chalet Girl.

Reminiscent of a female Aspen Extreme, the movie stars Jones as pretty tomboy Kim, a one-time champion skateboarder who now flips burgers to support herself and her dad. Opportunity comes knocking when she lands a winter-long catering job in a plush ski chalet in the Austrian Alps.

At first, Kim is overwhelmed by this bizarre new world of champagne-sipping posh people, epic mountains and waist-deep powder. But then she discovers snowboarding, and her natural talent soon sees her training for the end-of-season competition, which could win her major prize money and maybe even the affections of her boss’ handsome son Jonny (Ed Westwick, TV’s Gossip Girl).

Directed by Phil Traill (TV’s Men of a Certain Age), the British film also stars Brooke Shields (Furry Vengeance), Bill Nighy (Pirate Radio), Bill Bailey (Never Mind the Buzzcocks), Tamsin Egerton (TV’s Sons of Anarchy) and Sophia Bush (TV’s One Tree Hill).

Following a theatrical release in Europe, Chalet Girl opened on a limited basis in U.S. theaters in October 2011 to generally fair reviews.

Here’s the snowy trailer for the movie:
