"Mount Cook is currently one of the youngest mountains in the world and happens to be New Zealand's tallest. Seasoned athletes Sam Smoothy, Xavier DeLeRue, and Nadine Wallner resolve to scale the mountain and ski down. With three weeks to prepare, Xavier and Nadine are sure they will get the opportunity they seek, but the weather in New Zealand is unpredictable. Strong winds, heavy snow, and thick clouds can make visibility a serious problem. Battered by extreme weather conditions, will the quartet achieve their goal before their time runs out?
