To Be Cast


"Cloud Nine" centers on a group of teens who attend Summit Valley High and compete in Snowboarding. Will Cloud is a former teen snowboarding ace who gave up competing after fracturing his leg in an event, and now helps his mother run her pet spa for dogs at the upscale Summit Valley Resort. After the resort owner's daughter Kayla moves to town, Will ends up coaching her to compete in the Summit Valley Fire & Ice Games Half Pipe Snowboard event. As the two become close, romance is inevitable. Action, deception, humor, and a group of jammin' dogs makes for an amazing story of human spirit!
