Frozen is about best friends Joe Lynch (Shawn Ashmore) and Dan Walker (Kevin Zegers) going to Mount Holliston with Dan’s girlfriend Parker O’Neil (Emma Bell) for some winter fun one weekend. When they arrive at the mountain Parker is convinced by Dan to go to the ski lift attendant and try bribing him to let them up the mountain without purchasing tickets. The attendant accepts the bribe allowing Joe, Dan, and Parker up the ski lift so they spend the afternoon on mountain skiing and snowboarding. After they get back down to the lodge and have some drinks Joe complains to Dan about how they spent the afternoon on the “bunny slope” because Parker was not that good when it came to snowboarding. He convinces Dan that they should go up the mountain one last time before it closes.
When the three of them arrive back at the ski lift the attendant is closing up the lift because due to an approaching storm the resort has decided to close up early. Joe, Dan, and Parker plead with the guy to let them go up saying they would not be long and reminded him of the earlier bribe so he let them on the lift. After sending them up the lift the attendant is called to the bosses office so he tells a co-worker there are still three skiers on the mountain and after they come down the lift can be shut off. Shortly after the attendant that is now at the lift sees a different group of three skiers come down the mountain so he shuts off the lift and leaves. Which strands Joe, Dan, and Parker on their lift chair quite high off the ground.
At first the trio believe that the power outage is temporary and will soon come back on because someone knew they were on the lift. Soon the storm comes in and they realize they are alone on the mountain. When they figure out noone will be back until the next weekend when the resort reopens they have to find some way to help themselves.
The rest of the movie is the three friends trying to get off the lift and down the mountain. If I try to describe much more the movie will be ruined because I will have to include spoilers and believe this is a movie better seen than described. I urge people to check this out ans see a fine cinematic product with few characters involved in the story.
