BS Tantei Club: Yuki ni Kieta Kako(BS探偵倶楽部 雪に消えた過去,BS Detective Club: Lost Memories in the Snow?) is a text-based adventure game developed and published by Nintendo for the Satellaview in 1997. It is the third game in the Famicom Tantei Club series, following Famicom Tantei Club: Kieta Kōkeisha and Part II: Ushiro ni Tatsu Shōjo. The game is made up of 3 chapters; the first was broadcast from February 9~14, the second from February 16~21, and the last from February 23~28. The game was later re-broadcast several times. It is currently not possible to obtain and play this game in its intended form, as Satellaview service is no longer supported, some parts of the game used stream voice acting, which is not part of the game code itself, and the game was never ported to other consoles. As a Satellaview release, it was never released outside of Japan.

She meets with her mother and her old friend Reiko for the first time in years, hoping to ease her fatigue by relaxing at her childhood home. However, Gozo Kusano, the former mayor of Ochitani village, is found dead the next morning in a secluded area outside his house. Toshie was the discoverer of the dead body, and she is apprehended by the police as a suspect because her footprints were the only ones found in the snow near the crime scene.
