  • Title: Sundance Ski and Mountain Resort hosts November WBR Training | Wasatch Backcountry Rescue
    Descriptive info: Sundance Ski and Mountain Resort hosts November WBR Training.. Blog Home.. Sundance Ski and Mountain Resort hosted the November WBR training, the focus was on obedience and socialization of the dogs.. 18 teams attend from every ski resort represented by WBR.. We also put on a demonstration of some lift evacuation equipment we had just purchased for this up coming season.. For the 8th of November it was warm and sunny, not great for the up coming ski season but a great day for dog training.. The socialization and obedience portion of the day was fun with great performances from all teams.. The lift evacuation was a great skill to cover - every team had the opportunity to put the harness  ...   a valuable drill and a tremendous learning experience for all.. The information shared between the teams was invaluable.. Think Snow!.. Tue, 11/24/2009 - 12:28am | Posted by.. Kevin Breedlove.. Kevin Breedlove s blog.. Comments.. Post new comment..

  • Title: Blogs: Avalanche Safety | Wasatch Backcountry Rescue
    Descriptive info: Blogs: Avalanche Safety.. Results 16 - 30 of 32.. Results.. Safety and Decision Making: A Psychological Dilemma.. Last week I went on mountain with Snowbird Ski Patroller Ari Theodore to do some basic beacon locator drills and transceiver practice.. I learned a lot and had a great time, but it was a sobering experience.. After locating two buried beacons I began to think about what the drill represented, what those thuds I had felt my probe striking were intended to represent.. Bodies.. As the reality of the drill sunk in I started thinking about all the unnecessary risks we take in our day to day lives, and how taking just one of those risks, making one tiny mistake in the backcountry could put actual human life in danger.. Then it hit me- what about the tiny mistakes we make every day we ski in bounds at the resort?.. Sat, 12/1/2012 - 10:27pm | Posted by.. WBR Intern.. WBR Intern s blog.. Add new comment.. Read more..

However, after moving to Utah in 2010, it took very little convincing for Whitney to trade in her carving skis for powder skis.. After spending two seasons cutting her teeth within the resorts in the Wasatch Range, Whitney is excited to expand on her snow science knowledge  ...   to be considered operational for the up-and-coming winter season.. The test focuses on the K-9 s ability to heel, stay, stay with the handler out of site, and aggression with other avalanche teams.. Congratulations to the teams that passed!..

It's still a great, convienent place to stop and do a few quick drills to keep your skills sharp on your way to Tombstone and beyond, or use it to learn your beacon and hone your skills..
