Exposition - Poker Flat is declining in its morals.  The people want to get rid of the bad influences.

Rising Action - People are exiled from the town , stop to rest in the woods, and hide in a cabin after meeting two fleeing lovers.

Climax - Uncle Billy steals the mules and horses.  The others are stranded in a horrible snow storm.

Falling Action - the characters make different decisions about how they will end their lives.

Resolution - the sheriff comes and finds the body of the Duchess and Piney in a restful embrace, dead.  John Oakhurst has committed suicide.  As it turns out, all of the "bad influences" were good except for Uncle Billy and did not deserve to be exiled.
