What starts out as a fun back-country ski trip during Spring Break quickly takes a terrifying turn. Matt and Tony, high school seniors from Florida, meet up with Tony's brother Sid and some of his buddies just outside their Colorado college town for a weekend of skiing and having a good time.

The morning starts off great, but an afternoon avalanche has these adventure seekers fighting for their lives. This book begins being told exclusively from Matt's perspective, but as the group splits off to get help after some of their party is injured in the avalanche, we begin to see and hear the events from the other skiers viewpoints.

This book is filled with non-stop action. While I felt at times that it was a little too dramatic and unrealistic, the traumatic events ensured that I couldn't put this book down until I'd learned who, if anyone, would make it out alive.
