After extensive negotiations and great expense, the White Book of Ski Areas is very pleased to announce the addition of Picabo Sweet to its staff. Picabo is a seven month old Black & Tan Coonhound. She hails from, of course, Huntsville, Alabama and completed her early training at Rocky Top Kennel. She joined the White Book as an intern last October and quickly demonstrated her impressive skills at delivering kisses, hugs and making us laugh. She’s now ready to assume her duties. As our official canine correspondent, “Peaks” responsibilities of course include sniffing out powder but she’ll also have her nose to the wind for the preferred trails and restaurants at ski areas around the US and Canada. Watch for “Peak’s Picks” coming soon.
