FEATURE: The working canines of the Cascades

Mt. Bachelor has gone to the dogs. Every day, several dozen canines are mixed in with the humans who work and play on the banks of Bend’s ski hill. Whether they are the rescue dogs trained to save lives in the case of an avalanche, or the sled dogs raised to ferry humans quickly and safely over the snow, these pups are not spending this winter lying around.
