Twenty-eight teams of handlers and avalanche rescue dogs from around the country have gathered at Snowbird, UT to partake in avalanche victim search drills, beacon searches, helicopter training and classroom sessions conducted by Wasatch Backcountry Rescue (WBR).

Training sessions include a highway rescue scenario with a buried car, a dog agility course, obedience and discipline training, a beacon rescue search and a helicopter transceiver search using new long-range receiver technology.

WBR hosts the biennial avalanche rescue dog seminar, which features instructors from some of the most elite training and certification organizations in the world for avalanche rescue groups. WBR is the only professional rescue agency in the United States that is a member of the International Commission for Alpine Rescue (IKAR).
