Publisher Description:
Two groups of teens--those waiting to be saved and those doing the saving--are in a race against time and a battle against Mother Nature after an avalanche traps them in an isolated cabin in this chilling novel.

"I promise it'll be a weekend you'll never forget."

A trip like that is exactly what Matt was hoping for--a fun adventure. A daring escape. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go backcountry skiing in a thrilling but dangerous pass through the Rocky Mountains. The perfect way for Matt to forget about his disappointing father and maybe let loose a little with his best friend and a group of carefree adrenaline junkies.

But then their guide takes them off-path...and straight into an avalanche. By the time they make it safely into an abandoned cabin, one skier is dead and another severely injured. Trapped with no heat, no water, and no radio the group decides to wait it out. Help will come. It has to.

But it doesn't. And Matt knows if they wait any longer they'll be dead--just another bunch of victims in Mother Nature's twisted games. Armed with only a handful of supplies and his fierce determination Matt decides to goes head-to-head with the elements, battling hypothermia, frostbite, and even mountain lions in order to find help and save them all. That is if Mother Nature doesn't kill him first.
