The synopsis from Hallmark reads: "Resort developer Madison Lane (Finnigan) is tasked with finding a location for a new ski resort. While she’s prepared to recommend the resort be placed in Mountain Park, her boss tells her to take a trip to Christmas, Colo., to consider the location and the incentive package they’re offering. On her way into town to meet with the mayor, Madison has a minor fender-bender with the town’s welcome sign. Town Sheriff Gage McBride (Mabius) gives Madison a ride into town so she can attend the meeting while the car is towed and repaired. Little does Madison know that the town is on a mission to convince Madison that Christmas is the best place for the new ski resort. While stranded, Madison grows to love the community and the spirit of Christmas that runs throughout. Is a resort really the right move for Christmas? Or would the town be better off keeping its charm and traditions intact?"
A shorter synopsis by Hallmark reads: "Sheriff Gage McBride and the residents of tiny Christmas, Colorado work to convince resort developer Madison Lane to build her company’s newest resort nearby, which will save the struggling town. Workaholic Madison finds herself falling for the charming town, as well as the kind and handsome widowed sheriff."
Welcome to Christmas stars Eric Mabius and Jennifer Finnigan.
