Steamboat Ski Patrol was introduced to its newest member this week.

The 10-week-old Saint Bernard named Powder and owner Duncan Draper dropped by the Good Day studios today.

Powder is not only an avalanche rescue dog... but she is also being used to grab skiers attention and teach them about skier safety.

Draper hopes powder will help Steamboat get three main points across to skiers:

  1. Avoid objects and other skiers below
  2. Only stop in places where you can be seen from above
  3. Look up before pulling onto a connecting run.
