The Mountain chronicles the larger-than-life saga of the Carvers, whose colorful patriarch, David Carver, Sr. founded the town and its internationally famous ski resort after winning the land in a poker game. When this legendary man unexpectedly dies, his choice of an heir sends shockwaves throughout the community.
Free-spirited David Carver, Jr. (Oliver Hudson) left home years ago to pursue his dream of becoming a world-class motocross racer, while his older brother Will (Anson Mount) diligently attended business school with every expectation of taking over the family empire. No one, least of all the brothers themselves, expected David to inherit the Mountain. Now, David finds himself saddled with a responsibility he never wanted and a brother who rightly feels betrayed. Will David sell out and run, or will he stay to fight for the survival of the family business?
