What's New with the Telluride Avalanche Dogs_.JPG


Newsletter: November 2023

Welcome to a glimpse into the Telluride Avalanche Dogs! 

We are excitedly anticipating the upcoming winter season.

Noteworthy is the loss of Wiley, who ended his career but not his legacy. 

Lady Bee has officially RETIRED from service after 13 seasons. She will be spending the first winter of her life at home as opposed to work.  Upcoming she will host a hot dog weenie roast at PHQ.  Stay tuned!

Last winter we had multiple in area avalanches, of which GRETCHEN and STELLA worked, clearing the sites and determining the status of no victim(s) caught. 

Multiple injuries plagued multiple dogs last season and we are grateful for their care, the funds received by donors, and ultimately for their current health.  

Our website,, has been revamped by our talented Madeleine Kunda, so please visit often and enjoy its many offerings, including THE SHOP, THE GALLERY, DONATIONS and more.

Two new puppies enter the fleet this season.  MISTY and SWE are two adorable pups, available for viewing in person on the mountain or on the website!

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT, PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE.  We could not do what we do without YOU.
