Alpine Meadows has some extreme mountain terrain to test the skill and bravado of skiers and riders. And we put an extreme amount of effort to keep our bowls, chutes and glades safe from avalanche danger.
Along with our ski patrol avalanche crews part of keeping you safe on our steep terrain is maintaining a team of patrollers and rescue dogs to find you and get you out if anything should happen.
Brian and Shooter and the Alpine Meadows Ski Patrol team work really hard to be prepared for action wherever they are needed. We love to see them on the mountain and hope that skiers and riders at Alpine Meadows feel safer knowing that they are there.
Dogs like Shooter burn a ton of calories dog-schralping through the snow and Scraps Dog Bakery in Truckee and Breeder’s Choice Dog Food keep them charging on those long days on the mountain. (Brian and the other “human patrollers” prefer more sophisticated cuisine.
