Summary Follow along with Piper, a friendly border collie who came to the mountain as a smart but timid shelter dog, terrified by everything, as she confidently heads off to school on a chairlift to meet her canine classmates. Over a season they romp together through the snow, learning and practicing the skills they need to be avalanche rescue dogs and earn their rescue certification. You'll also learn the warning signs and conditions that cause an avalanche, the four types of avalanches, and the basics of avalanche safety.
