Our mountain patrol team continues to train all season long. Recently our Human Resources Recruiter Steve Mullins volunteered himself to be buried and rescued as part of a Wasatch Backcountry Level "A" Rescue Test. All dog teams take their "A" test at other resorts, rather than their own. In this video Park City Mountain Resort is host to Jessie Martin and her dog Izzy from Deer Valley Resort.
Enjoy this unique look into how the dog teams search and rescue during a simulated and controlled avalanche event. We're sure you'll agree it is truly astonishing and we are thankful for our mountain patrol teams and all that they do to provide a great experience for us and our guests.
Originally from the Pocono’s of Pennsylvania, Travis found his way to Park City three years ago and is now our grooming manager. When not in snowcat you can find him skiing or snowmobiling in the Utah backcountry or enjoying the skiing here at Park City Mountain Resort.
