“Meet Gray, Piper and Caleb…the four legged members of the Snowmass Ski Patrol handled by Nathan Garfield, Dan Berg and Susan “Mouse” Carollo. These avalanche rescue dogs always seem to be wearing a smile, whether they’re putting up boundary ropes or training year round as search and rescue dogs. But then again, they always get to ride first chair.”
You definitely don’t want to end up in an avalanche in Colorado any time soon. But if you do and you’re near or in a ski resort, you’ll be hoping to see one these doggers digging you out.
Thanks patrol and thanks patrol dogs.
