Cute Alert! Meet Moki, the newest member of Snowbird Ski Patrol. This little puppy makes even the toughest dudes involuntarily “aawww,” but she’s more than an adorable pup. She is a hero in training. Her mission: recover avalanche victims. She is trained to recognize scents and uncover people buried beneath the snow. We hope Moki can prevent the loss of friends like professional skier, Jamie Pierre, who was taken by an avalanche November of 2011 at the unopened Snowbird Ski Resort.
If your heart breaks for the Pierre family, you are encouraged to offer your support here.
