It’s a new year. And up here at Alta that new year has been paired with a new addition to the Alta Ski Patrol.
Skiers, meet Fitz.
Fitz is a 7 1/2 week old golden lab. Born at Utah’s DustBuster Kennels, he was just recently brought up to Alta by his handler, Patroller, Adam Nesbitt.
Too young to be working, Fitz will be spending his days getting acclimated to his surroundings, his new co-workers, and inevitably each and everyone of you reading this blog post. When he gets to be around 6 months old, Fitz and Adam will begin more serious training to get Fitz ready for his duties as an Alta Ski Area Avalanche Dog.
