Fjord's Mountain Mission - children's illustrated snow safety book out for Christmas - help us raise the funds! (just click on the link below)
To keep the memory of Fjord alive and the incredible work he did, the illustrated children's book, 'Fjord’s Mountain Mission’ has been created.
The story is a magical account of a real avalanche dog and his mission in the snowy mountains.
Through his adventures, your children can learn the essentials before they head to the resorts for their winter holiday, empowering them to enjoy their trip to the full.
Beautiful illustrations are combined with helpful tips to help keep your children safe and learn some fascinating facts about the life of a working avalanche dog and how to reduce your carbon footprint when visiting the mountains.
All donators can opt to have their initials printed inside an individual snowflake on the inside cover.
If the funds are raised 'Fjord Mountain Mission' illustrated book will be ready for Christmas and will be available in E book and hopefully next year in printed form.
Thank You / Merci / Vielen Dank / Muchas Gracias

Kendal Mountain Festival - Fjord's presence again was warmly welcomed - scroll through the photos.. 'tug of strength here we go!'
Great to be back at the Kendal Mountain Film Festival to highlight the essentials of basic mountain safety for all those hitting the slopes this winter; adults and especially children. Star of the talk is always the Faithful Fjord and his never ending search for his favourite tuggy toy! Thank you www.kevinmoran.co.uk for such great action photos.
Introduction into Snow Safety Awareness for the NSSA - sadly Fjord could not attend due to his operation but there was good participation and some great motivated young people stayed on for the workshop to try out the avalanche beacons and Recco.
Over 10 years working in ski patrol rescue and most recently as a SAR dog handler, passionate about ski touring and generally being out in nature. I enjoy sharing my professional experience with others, helping train adults and youngsters in snow awareness so they can go out and enjoy to the full the mountain environment.
