Chalet Girl

Synopsis: Pretty tomboy Kim Matthews, 19, used to be a champion skateboarder - but now she's stuck in a dead end job trying to support her Dad. Opportunity comes knocking in the form of a catering job in the one of the most exclusive chalets in the Alps. At first, Kim's baffled by this bizarre new world of posh people, champagne and skiing - but then she discovers snowboarding, and the chance to win some much-needed prize money at the big end-of-season competition. But before she can become a champion again, Kim's going to have to dig deep to overcome her fears. Hard enough, without the complicating factor of Jonny, her handsome - though spoken for - boss...

- You think so?

Yeah. What's a luxury chalet with hot,

rich clients in a beautiful ski resort

got on this place? it's a no-brainer.

- Oi, I found this toenail in my...

- Don't even try.

See? Would you get that kind of

quality entertainment in Austria?

I don't think so.

Hi, it's Kim Matthews from yesterday.

I was wondering if you're still...

(Bella) Still desperately seeking

a chalet girl? Yes, I am.

- You are?

- Could you do it?

You have to be there tomorrow.

It's ten hours on the overnight train.

(Kim) Right. I'm making freezer food

to last until April.

You know how the microwave works?

(Dad) It's a magnetron

that converts electricity...

- (Kim) No, no, no. Like on, off?

- (Dad) Yeah, yeah.

What am I doing? I'm packing you off

to some mountainous wasteland,

while I'm stuck here looking for a job.

(Kim) it'll happen,

as long as you keep trying.

- (Dad) But you're only 19.

- (Kim) Exactly! I'm 19.

Lt% Austria. Hardly a wasteland.

(Dad) Austria. Famous for

"The Sound of Music", breaded food

and the invention of psychoanalysis.

You join the dots.

(Kim) You Te such a freak.

No wonder nobody will hire you.

- And you won't forget to have a bath?

- (Dad) Every month.

(Kim) I give up.

And what exactly am I

supposed to do with this?

- What is it?

- You can't live on beans on toast.

We won two world wars

and one World Cup on beans on toast,

so don't knock 'em.

I've set it up online,

so you'll get a delivery every week.

Lexi, this is my health-freak dad, Bill.

Bill, this is Lexi.

I'm trusting you to keep him alive

till I get back, OK?

- (car horn beeps)

- Shit.

My pay goes into the mortgage account.

I'll send any tips back.

Any envelopes...

Big red letters. I know.

Now hurry up, you'll miss your train.

- Maybe this isn't a great idea.
