Description

 

See below for English description.

Après avoir déménagé de Toronto à Glory en Colombie-Britannique, Alex Mason, onze ans, vit une période d'adaptation difficile. Alex n'a pas d'amis et se fait taquiner par Owen, un garçon de sa classe, parce qu'il vient de l'est et qu'il n'est pas très habile sur les pistes de ski. Lorsque Ben, un nouveau garçon, arrive en ville, Alex et lui se lient d'amitié. Ensemble, ils planifient de construire un fort de neige aux proportions épiques!

Mais catastrophe! Une avalanche engloutit Alex, Ben et Owen. Alex doit garder son sang-froid afin de se libérer et de sauver les deux autres garçons…

 

Eleven-year-old Alex Mason has just moved from Toronto to Glory, British Columbia, and he's having a tough time. Friendless, he is teased by his classmate Owen for being from "out East", and for his lack of skill on the ski slopes. But when a new boy, Ben, moves to town, the boys bond over their love of building and quickly make plans to construct an epic snow fort together.

When a freak avalanche strikes and traps Alex, Ben and Owen in deep, immobilizing snow, Alex must keep it together enough to free himself and save the other boys.

Will they survive?
