After the death of his grandfather, David, the Carver family's prodigal son, returns to Boundary Mountain which is home to the Carvers' ski resort, a lush vacation spot set against the backdrop of extreme sports. Tensions soon rise when it is revealed that David has inherited the ski resort over Will, his business-savy brother. David struggles to figure out how to deal with this situation but things aren't made any easier when he's pressured by Travis, a family friend and a Boundary employee, to sell the resort to the entrepreneurial Dowling family.
Also, Shelly, the youngest Carver and an aspiring snowboardist, once preparing to compete in the Gennie Carver Foundation Invitational, is now trying to deal with the death of her grandfather by pushing away her best friend, Sam.
The Carvers have set a meeting with a bank manager to get a loan that would help them keep the resort running during the winter but David is nowhere to be found. Turns out he's in Denver for a motocross race where things turn ugly and David ends up in jail. On top of that, Dowling is offering more money to the resort's employees so they can come work for him.
It's "Boundary Days" in town which is a cowboy-themed event being organized by the Dowlings. This doesn't sit well with the Carvers since the event was always organized by the late Dave Sr. David, Will and Maria decide to organize their own event. Something new, something different. David enrolls some old friends to help him with a plan that Max had given him about throwing a beach-themed party at the resort. Everything goes well until the Dowlings decide to show up with a few friends including Travis.
Meanwhile, Shelly begins to hang out with Michael Dowling sparking jealousy in Sam.
A man named F. Robert Chapin co-chairs a charity with Gennie.

She meets with him and, at first, she isn't willing to give him a single chance but she soon falls victim to his charms.
Everyone at the Dowlings' new hotel, The St. George, seems to respect and like Colin but it seems that Travis is taking a little bit too much authority in the Dowling company especially when he starts to use Colin's desk and decides to fire an employee.
Shelly gives Michael snowboarding tips resulting in her spending more time with him. Colin advises Michael to steer clear of Shelly because of the difference in their ages.
David faces both professional and personal problems at the hotel. Not only are the aging pipes beginning to leak but Will is looking to fire Eric unaware that the man has a secret that could hurt David.
After being fired from his job at Boundary, Eric feels betrayed so he decides to tell Travis all about David's secret. Now, Travis, hoping to get his job with the Dowlings back, uses the secret to get what he wants from David which includes control of one part of the mountain.
Shelly and Sam inadvertently get Michael in trouble when they start a playful snowball fight with him which results in Colin's truck getting dirty. But this doesn't stop Michael from attending Gennie's charity masquerade party in hopes of getting closer to Shelly.
Meanwhile, Gennie realizes that Robert is smitten with her and that she might be smitten with him as well.
Colin tries to play nice with the Carvers since David has sold him some land on the mountain (which Travis had actually extorted). Colin has breakfast with David and Max, he buys Maria a dress and he invites the Carver brothers to a formal business occasion. All of this irks Will since he knows that Colin and Travis blackmailed David into selling the land.
Will finally finds a way to get back at Colin when he discovers that the land David had sold is completely worthless. He sees the perfect oppurtunity to humiliate Colin with this information at the formal gathering in front of all his board members.
Michael and Shelly continue to flirt with each other but Shelly soon begins to fear that Michael will grow tired of innocent flirtations and move on. So she decides to take things further by inviting him to spend some time alone with her in a house that Sam has been asked to look after while the owner is away.
Meanwhile, Travis meets a beautiful woman named Vanessa and is instantly attrac
Eric is discovered nearly frozen to death on the Carver's ski lift. No one understands how this could have happened so David talks to Scarlett, the young Boundary employee who was working on the mountain the night before, and she reveals that she may have been distracted while shutting down the ski lift. This could open the Carvers up to a major lawsuit but David is more concerned with trying to figure out what Eric was doing back at Boundary in the first place.

While there she runs into Michael and Ronnie, the band's manager and his beautiful ex-girlfriend.

Mona Richards, a family friend of the Carvers, arrives in town with her daughter Riley. Will and David discover that Mona owns a piece of the mountain and that Colin is hoping to buy it from her. The brothers hope to convince Mona not to sell by reminding her how much David Sr., her former lover, meant to her. They find this task difficult since Mona was scorned by David Sr. after he cheated on her with another woman.
Meanwhile, Mona's daughter Riley surprises everyone with how much she's grown. Once a gawky, nerdy little girl who used to hang out with David all the time, she has now blossomed into a beautiful, sexy young woman hoping to spark a romance with her childhood friend.

Gennie's ex-husband Whit, the father of her childen, returns to Boundary and decides to reconnect with the daughter he hardly knows. Shelly is more than happy to finally have a father in her life but David, who knows Whit better, doesn't want anything to do with the man he considers a liar and a thief.
Shelly is eager to mend her relationship with her father so she begins training with him by her side. Gennie is wary of Whit's intentions for returning to Boundary so she warns him not to get too close to Shelly for fear that she'll only get hurt. Although Gennie's intentions are good, they only help to push Shelly closer to Whit and in turn causes a riff between Gennie and her daughter.
After seeing Maria at work, Colin decides to offer her a job in New York.
