In a snow covered field somewhere in the world, Lumiukko, the magic snowman, is witnessing spring. All around him are the sounds and signs of the approaching season. His friend Gustella, the Winter Wind, arrives to wake him. "He is cutting it close," says Gustella, "he cannot be here when Siroc, the Summer Wind, arrives." Away the two friends fly... looking for another part of the world where winter is in the air.
A continent away in the quaint little town of Jensenville, New England is the home of three inseparable friends: Steven Fried and Kim & Tommy Wilson. In this part of the country, Jensenville is famous for the annual Winter Festival and a big ski jumping contest held at the start of the school winter break. Unfortunately, this year the town folks are having a hard time focusing on the Winter Festival, preoccupied by the tricks of the recently arrived Serena Queen who is soon to be married to Steven’s father, a local owner of a music store.
