A fact based adventure story aboud two snowboarders, an avalanche and a very smart little dog. When Dag and his son go out to explore the snow and check it's integrity, their little dog goes with. He saves the bold Kelly from a deadly fate when the little dog knocks her off her feet, saving the day. A good way to teach children about the dangers of snowboarding and skiing in fresh snow, and the warning signs of an avalanche. ( )

Axel and his dad, a snow patrol officer, live in a cabin in the Teton Mountains. New snow has fallen overnight and Axel is anxious to go snowboarding in Glory Bowl. But Dag must first check for avalanche conditions and, if necessary, sound off the snow cannon before the other skiers arrive. Axel's dog Grits comes along and ends up saving Kelly's life when a jaybird sets off an avalanche. As is Ms George's way, this story informatively covers the facts of avalanche dangers and prevention.
