When Erin's babysitter does not show up when she's supposed to, Erin's parents are convinced that Amy is just an irresponsible teenager. Erin doesn't believe that though. She and Amy are friends. Amy has confided in Erin. She has told Erin all about a secret cabin in the woods that she hopes to live in one day. Erin is told that Amy and her mother have moved to Tucson but Amy certainly would have said goodbye. When Erin is assigned a science project, she decides to study animal tracks in the snow. This is a perfect excuse to go looking for Amy. Unfortunately, Erin's study partner, Tiffany insists on going along. What the two girls don't know is that a storm is coming and they won't make it out of the woods that day. Join Erin and Tiffany as they try to survive after following TRACKS IN THE SNOW.
