Meet Alpine Meadow's newest Ski Patrol Puppy in training, Ridge.
Ridge is 5 months old and training with his Ski Patrol handler, Sean.
But all the hard work can tire him out...
Watson started last spring as an Alpine Patrol Dog in training with his human Ski Patroller, Carl.
Now Watson is almost 1 year old and still training to become a Pro!
He turns 1 on February 19...Happy early birthday, Watson!
Huxley, a Chocolate Lab, also joined the Alpine Dogs team in Spring 2016.
Huxley turned 1 in December 2016 and is almost full grown. He continues to train with his Ski Patrol handler, Doug
...but still loves to play:
