Hot Chalet Girl on Chalet Girl Action – The Surprising Inspiration for the Chalet Girl Movie

Earlier this year the Rom-Com Chalet Girl was released. At the time we didn't go to the trouble of reviewing it, however it recently came to our attention that this seemingly charming movie had a surprising muse. Back in 2008 another movie called Chalet Girl was released and although it went unnoticed and unheralded by the mainstream snowboarding and movie media, the similarities between the two movies are striking. Today we compare them…

WARNING: Things start to get a bit different looking from this point onwards. From here on out the 2001 certificate 12 move does tend to tone down certain aspects of the 2008 version.

You don't want to know the context of this one

The one thing that was very apparent in the 2011 movie was the involvement of Roxy. The movie was part funded by them, the riders who appeared in the movie were mostly Roxy riders and their logo appeared throughout.

100% Fact*
So there you have it. The charming Rom-Com movie Chalet Girl was actually a blatant rip-off of the 2008 porn version. 

You may have noticed a few minor differences. Here are a few other scenes that weren't replicated:
2008 The pussy scene
2008 The incredibly awkward sleeping arrangements scene
2011 The horrifyingly suggestive scene
 2011 The Christian Stevenson has a vagina surprise

*The Fess Up
In reality the two movies are completely different, we've used a huge amount of artistic licence in this article. Chalet Girl (the non-porny one) is actually pretty good and a much better movie than we thought it would be. By our reckoning it's worth a few more points than it's currently got on IMDB.  It is a pretty standard Rom-Com, but it’s been done well and with the bonus of the snowboarding element we’d recommend it. In a nutshell it’s the story of Jenny Jones topped and tailed by the story of Cinderella. The other movie of course has no actual plot at all

I ordered the movies from Amazon, so now I’ll be faced with a year of Amazon recommending some pretty filthy shit.
