Synopsis: At Mount Holliston, snowboarders Dan Walker, his girlfriend Parker O'Neil and his best friend Joe Lynch don't have enough money to buy lift tickets. Parker bribes Jason, a lift-worker, with one hundred dollars. When the system is nearing closure, they force Jason to let them have one last pass. However, Jason needs to resolve a problem and his colleague misunderstands his instructions and stops the lift. The trio of skier and snowboarders gets stranded on the chairlift near the top of the mountain. When they see that the lights of the ski resort had been turned off, they need to make a choice: leave the chairlift or freeze to death.

I don't see her.

The shift changes.

Just give it a couple of minutes.

You guys sure about this?

Yeah yeah, works all the time.

Besides, this lady loves Lynch.

- Loves him.

- I'm cute.

Is that...

is that her?


Parker, what you could do

is go down there and look beautiful

and smile.

- What? Me?

- Yeah.

Uh, no.

No no, this is your thing.

All you have to do is go

over there and say, like,

"Hey, me and my friends... "


Say girlfriends.

"Me and my girlfriends totally

forgot our credit cards

so we can't get our lift tickets

from over there.

- So can you, like, help us out?"

- That is so lame.

- Give me my money back.

- Your money.

- It's not gonna work.

- Take this. Start at 50.

That's what the other

lady usually takes.

And just, you know,

work your way up if you need to.

- Dan...

- Hey, look at me. Look at me.

You're gonna be fine.

You'll be great.

Parker, you've so got this.

Yeah, and what's the worst

that can happen?

The guy says no.

And he's not gonna say no.

No one's ever said no.

Dan, you do it.

I feel stupid.

Relax, okay?

I promise, you're gonna be great.

- Why me?

- That's 'cause you're a girl.

A beautiful...

hey, you're a beautiful girl.

And you have a charming smile.



There we go.

That's great.

Go get him.

- Get in the game.

- Okay.

come on.

Attention all skiers.

The Black Dog Trail is now open.

Sorry for the inconvenience.


can I bum a smoke?

- I'm Parker.

- Jason.

Oh cool.

My brother's name is Jason.

That's awesome.

Yeah, so I don't want to waste

your time or anything

because you seem like

a wicked busy guy and everything.

This is gonna sound really stupid.

It's just that my girlfriends and I

came all the way up

from Salem State.

I was kind of the dumbass

who said that I could pay

for all three of the tickets

on my mom's credit card.

And then I left her credit card

at the gas station.

- Right.

- No, I mean...

I totally have money.

Just not enough for all three,

you know?

- How much?

- 50?

I could lose my job.

No no, he's not going for it.

Yes he will.

Just shut up, please.

I mean he's either gonna do that job for...

what do you call it, minimal?

- Minimum.

- Minimum wage,

or he's gonna do it for minimum wage

plus a little bit.

I mean, I know what I'd do.

She just had to come

skiing today, huh?

You said you wouldn't mind.

I don't. I don't mind.

I don't mind at all.

I'm just saying we haven't seen you

at Fezzywigs for a $1 pitcher

since last semester and you don't

show up for Monday Night Football.

I watched football

at your house last week.

Dan, 10 minutes. Football games

are more than 10 minutes.

They're like lots of 10 minuteses,

you know?

I have a girlfriend now.

I don't know what you want

me to do about it.

- I'm sorry.

- You know what? It's fine.

I'm... I'm just just saying that

Mt. Holliston was kind of our thing.

And she can't even ride

so it's a little weird.

- She's getting better.

- Yeah yeah.

Now I feel like a dick.

I mean, if you had a problem with this,

you've got to say something.

No no, it's not a problem.

Just forget I said anything.

I'm sorry.

Woman on P. A:

Attention all skiers.

Mt. Holliston will be open

next Friday through Sunday.

Get your tickets now

to avoid waiting in line.


I think you did great.

I'm proud of you, Parker.

- I did good, right?

- You did well.

So where's my change?

Um, there isn't any.

You just gave him the full 100?

Well, yeah.

He wasn't gonna do it for 50.

Okay, so what happened to

the numbers between 50 and 100?
