Congratulations Mik and Zooka!

In November this season, Mik Jedlicka took over the training and handling of Zooka—Alyeska Resort’s first official avalanche search dog. Since Mik was a new handler, she needed to prove her skills and competency in order to become an “operational team” with Zooka. They tested on February 5th and on February 28th Mik and Zooka became a bona fide avalanche rescue team!

Congratulations to the new team and look out for them on the hill, as they keep the resort boundaries as safe as possible.

    Congratulations to you both! A magnificent achievement, and a beautiful dog. Is Zooka a Toller by chance?
