Sebastian's son, Nick Swift (Luke Benward), is a snowboarding champion with a rebellious attitude who is not afraid to bend the rules to win. When he clashes with Kayla and her unorthodox training methods, he challenges her to a snowboarding competition called the Fire and Ice Snowboarding Invitational. Kayla accepts the challenge, but she has to work hard to get back in shape and regain her confidence in the sport.
