ALTA, Wyo. — The Grand Targhee avalanche dog program, GTK9, needs the community’s help!
The annual Powder Pigs: GTK9 Avalanche Dog Fundraiser is LIVE but virtual for the second year in a row. Your donation supports the training, feeding and travel of Grand Targhee’s dogs and their respective handlers. Throughout February, GTK9 will be holding an online silent auction and raffle.
Up for auction is Grand Targhee winter/summer season passes, massages, a float trip in a handmade wooden dory, a fishing trip, artwork and more items to come!
Grand Targhee Avalanche Dogs, or “GTK9”, is the group of handlers from the Grand Targhee Ski Patrol and their certified avalanche search and rescue dogs. GTK9 is a nonprofit organization that operates under the Grand Targhee Resort Ski Patrol and provides an additional service and safety level to the resort.
Grand Targhee avalanche dog teams consist of patrollers and their dogs who work together to search avalanche areas for skiers or snowboarders.
Let GTK9 know if you would like to donate anything to support our program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
