Favorite Hallmark Winter Movies Reviewed

Being an unabashed Christmas movie Hallmark fan there can be a Hallmark movie letdown after the holidays. While the Hallmark Christmas movies remain my favorite - the winter brings some entertaining Hallmark movies not to miss.

I'm no fan of winter, but winter is a bit more tolerable with a Hallmark movie to view after a day battling the snow, ice, salting and shoveling of a typical winter day in the Northern United States.

My Favorite Winter Theme Hallmark Movies

Love On Ice

Ice Skating, another winter sport I enjoy, is the backdrop for this Hallmark movie with Hallmark favorite Andrew Walker. He plays a figure skating coach hired to continue a young skaters' ascent through skating competitions. However, Hallmark fate steps in as he finds a former figure skater teaching at the same rink. The three combine to skate, compete and begin their collective journey to the figure skating championships. Figure skaters and figure skating fans will appreciate the nod to their sport in this delightful Hallmark movie.

Winter In Vail 

This is a very cute winter movie with two of the popular Hallmark leads Lacey Chabert and Tyler Hynes. The story revolves around a displaced event planner who inherits a beautiful Vail home. She teams with the local to preserve the history of his family business and the business itself. Strudel, beautiful scenery and quick banter are the theme of the movie which keeps true to the Hallmark romantic theme.

Taking A Shot At Love 

New for 2021 is Taking A Shot At Love with Alexa Penavaga and Luke McFarlane. Alexa plays a ballet instructor with the unexpected side gig of rehabbing a professional hockey player. Ballet, wit, and hockey play out through this charming and entertaining movie.

Two For The Win

Also new for 2021 is Two For the Win. I love skiing so this movie was fun to watch. The local ski instructor and professional skiier have a long history and the Hallmark sparks fly when she is hired to coach the professional after rehabbing an injury. Picturesque winter scenes and plenty of snow dominate the background of this ski loving movie.

Winter Castle

Have you ever dreamed of taking a vacation to an Ice Hotel? Hallmark veterans Kevin McGarry and Emilie Ullerup are at the Ice Hotel to attend the destination as the best man and maid of honor. The scenery is gorgeous as this was filmed at the real life Hotel de Glace in Quebec. Staying at an ice hotel is not for the timid traveler! Enjoy the ice hotel backdrop with the Hallmark romance intertwined.

  1. Hallmark movies are the best, Christmas time, winter time, anytime. Thanks for this summary of some favorite winter themed movies, Tracey.

  2. I love Hallmark movies at anytime and I will look for these ones too. In a world that is too full of "stuff" that I would rather NOT see, I know a Hallmark movie will give me something worth seeing. Thanks Tracey for this list and your reviews.

  3. Im always looking for a good movie. Thanks for your synopsis on these movies.

  4. It has been a long time since I watched a Hallmark movie, and these do, indeed, sound like a wonderful way to end the day after shoveling snow and salting ice in the frigid temps here in New England! We're out of wood logs, but I think we've got some eco-friendly Duraflame-type logs, and with a fire in the fireplace and a couple of mugs of my luscious, low carb Ultimate Hot Chocolate, I might be able to persuade my husband to join me. ;)

  5. Oh, goody! I have only seen one of these movies thus far and now look forward to seeing the rest. I do enjoy the Hallmark movies. They are easy to watch and don't distress me or leave me feeling sad (most often). I know a lot of people claim they are cheesy, but I say bring on the cheesy! There is enough stress and reality in real daily life.

  6. Hallmark is certainly a prolific film maker, Tracey and we enjoy them all.

  7. I've seen a few of these. I'm a big fan of what I call mindless kindness lol - The world has so much negativity coming at us, and these movies (that some feel are corny), are a peaceful mental break from some of the nastiness we can otherwise see on tv.

  8. Great movie suggestions here. I think watching a good film on dark winters evenings really does help. I think I would enjoy all of these films :) Thank you for your reviews.
