Following his adventures at the beach, Winston, the long-haired miniature dachshund, finds himself in another new world: the mountains. With his long hair and short legs, Winston soon discovers he is in his element in the snow. When Jack wants to head back, Winston wants to go faster, further and higher. But pride comes before a fall and it is loyal Jack who leads his little friend back to warmth and safety.
