A college fraternity treasure hunt is marred by accidents and dirty tricks - Nancy must find the culprit before the whole event is shut down.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
"Don't you love all this snow!" George Fayne remarked as her friend Nancy Drew drove her blue Mustang beneath the stone arch that marked the entrance to Emerson College. "The campus looks like someone spread a fluffy white blanket over the whole place."

"You mean, a
blinding white blanket." Nancy had been squinting into the bright afternoon sunlight all the way from River Heights. On the campus snow covered every roof and tree, and drifts reached as high as the first-floor windows of the brick and stone buildings. "It is beautiful, but I can hardly see a thing. Especially with the wind blowing all the new snow around."

"I love it!" George said. Her short brown curls danced around her face as she opened the passenger window and leaned out to catch a snowflake on her tongue. "Talk about perfect weather for the Big Chill Clues Challenge."

"I'll say." Nancy tossed her reddish blond hair over the shoulders of the blue cable-knit sweater she wore over her jeans. "It'll be great to see Ned. But I still can't believe I agreed to spend two days competing in an all-out,
outdoor treasure hunt with sports nuts like Ned and you."

"You know you'll love it," George said. "Besides, we sports nuts need a clues maniac like you if we're going to win the Clues Challenge."

Ned Nickerson, Nancy's longtime boyfriend, was a student at Emerson. When he called to ask if she and George wanted to join the Clues Challenge team from his fraternity, they both had said yes right away.

Publisher Description:
Dangerous pranks ice over an outdoor treasure hunt - and Nancy has to melt down the culprit!

Nancy and her friend George are visiting Emerson College, courtesy of Nancy's boyfriend, Ned. His fraternity is eager to win the Clues Challenge, an athletic treasure hunt sponsored by a local sporting goods store, so the girls join Ned's team. But accidents, dirty tricks, and computer warnings threaten to shut down the whole event.

Nancy suspects that someone has cheated by giving out the answers to the clues. Now she's investigating a pushy reporter, a jealous star athlete, a nervous store owner, and a snooty sorority president. Someone's got a secret agenda to win at any cost - and Nancy's skiing right into an avalanche of trouble!
