WHEN TORIN SINCLAIR'S mom gets a job as the town doctor in Snow Park, Colorado, Tor can't wait to learn to snowboard. But on Tor's first night there, a member of the high school snowboarding team dies. "It's the curse," everyone whispers. Tor's new friends Drake and Raine explain that there's an old Native American curse on the doctors of the town. Snow Park can never get a doctor to stay. Tor and his friends must piece together a mystery involving an old mine, a Ute curse, the entire snowboarding team--who just might be blood doping in order to win competitions-- and an attempt to save the wild river otters of Colorado. But to complete the puzzle, will Tor have to ride the deadly White Gates? And how will he survive the avalanche that follows? From the Hardcover edition.
