HI, I’m Bear, Steamboat’ Safety Dog.

You might have seen me around the resort. When you do see me, please come by and say hi - I love meeting new people and sharing safety tips. Today is a great day to talk about Deep Snow.

This month along, Steamboat has received more than 100 inches of snow, which means I have to be careful where I go. Same goes for you… While it’s great to get so much snow, in such a short period of time, everyone needs to be careful where they ski and ride. Be aware of deep snow conditions, especially tree wells and other natural and man-made obstacles.

Here are some of my favorite tips for being cautious in deep snow.

• Forget the old rule there are no friends on a powder day. Always ski and ride with friends especially near trees. Not only is it good in case you need a hand getting out of deep snow, but who else is going to vouch for your epic snow stories?

• Keep an eye out on your friends, and stay close enough that if someone needs to be pulled or dug out, you can help them. I’m really good at digging, but if something is buried too far away it makes it a lot harder.

• If something happens and your friend becomes immersed in deep snow, first try to clear an airway; then call for help. Steamboat Patrol can be reached at 970-871-5911.

I love a good powder day; and the best way to enjoy every day on the mountain is to Sniff Out Safety.

Be SlopeWise; and Ski & Ride with Care
