Synopsis
   Twin sisters Kylie and Taylor Hunter are ecstatic to get their licenses on their sixteenth birthday. They're even more excited to receive a beautiful red classic Mustang to share. Their parents let them take the car on a road trip with their friends to Salt Lake City, Utah for the 2002 Winter Olympics. However, when the girls break for something to eat, their car is stolen and they have to return home. Determined to get to Utah, they try other methods of travel--flying and the bus--and manage to botch every trip. However, they meet a girl named Charley living in the middle of nowhere who volunteers to take them to Utah in her dad's private jet. But by the time they arrive in Utah, there's only one event left to watch, and they don't have tickets. The group still has a blast skiing and hanging at the lodge.

Kylie (Played by Mary-Kate)
   Kylie was the fun-loving, easy-going Hunter sister. It was her idea to stop and get food that wound up getting their car stolen, and when they ended up flying to the wrong city, she tried to lighten the mood by suggesting other activities instead of just sitting around.

Taylor (Played by Ashley)
   Taylor was a little too uptight, but it was her trip that kept getting messed up, after all. She drove like a grandma, as we found out during her driver's test, and she tried so hard to plan the trip down to every detail. Still, things managed to go wrong despite her planning efforts.
