Pudi always lived in the Mountains. In winter, Pudi played in the snow and had lots of fun, but Pudi wanted more. He dreamed about a new snow adventure night and day, but he just couldn’t make it happen.
One day, when Pudi was busy trying to roll himself down the hill in a snowball, a mystical shepherd appeared, and told Pudi about a magical place where people race down the snowy slopes with planks on their feet. Pudi knew that this was the adventure he’d been looking for, so he set off to find the place they called “Afriski”.
What he found was better than he imagined. Pudi felt right at home with his skis, and within hours he was carving down the slopes. It was then that he spotted the most beautiful goat in the world… Trudi. But when he tried to talk to her, he was overwhelmed with shyness, and ran away before he got the chance.
That night, Pudi was woken by a terrifying scream. As it turns out, he was not the only one to be caught by Trudi’s beauty. The evil mountain gorilla had seen Trudi on her snowboard, and kidnapped her in the middle of the night. Pudi knew he had to save her, so he tracked the gorilla back to his lair. But the gorilla had set a traps on the slope that led down to his cave. Pudi put his thinking cap on, and came up with a plan. The best way to get past the traps was to ski in between them. So he strapped on his boots, and did something that no goat had ever done – he did 30 short turns in 10 metres, successfully skiing around the booby traps.
When he got down to the cave, he loaded up his arms with snowballs, and starting throwing them at the gorilla as soon as he saw him. One snowball hit the gorilla right between the eyes, and he fell over, knocked unconscious, and Pudi had saved Trudi.
When Trudi saw how brave Pudi was, she fell in love with him. They were married, and have been living happily at Afriski, with their little one, Mini, ever since.
