MT BACHELOR, OR -- Mt. Bachelor Resort has gained a new 4-legged employee. “Shasta” is a 9 week old Golden Retreiver puppy…in training to be the resort’s next avalanche dog. Mt. Bachelor Brand and Marketing Director Leigh Capozzi (kah-POH-zee) says “Shasta” was introduced to the public on Valentine’s Day and is the resort’s 16th avalanche dog since the program started in the 90’s. Capozzi says avalanche dogs provide critical support to ski patrol, moving over debris easily and using sense of smell to locate victims.
