Crested Butte ski patrolman Russ Reycraft and his avalanche rescue lab, Betty.   Sometimes he carries Betty to a rescue so her energy isn't depleted before a search.  When on the snow, the dogs are trained to run between the patrollers legs, to protect them from being hit by other skiers and boarders.
