Local artist and CARDA avalanche rescue dog handler Zuzana Riha Driediger has illustrated a new children's book about rescue dogs

Local artist and CARDA avalanche rescue dog handler Zuzana Riha Driediger has illustrated a new children’s book about rescue dogs that is designed to promote mountain safety to young skiers.

The book, entitled Radar the Rescue Dog, is based on Whistler’s first avalanche rescue dog, named Radar, and his handler Bruce Watt.

Author Janet Love said the book is an important tool to promote avalanche safety and education for young skiers.

The book is endorsed by the Canadian Avalanche Foundation, the Canadian Avalanche Rescue Dog Association (CARDA) and other ski professionals.

Federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau has penned a foreword for the book. Justin’s brother Michel died tragically in a 1998 avalanche.

Zuzana Driediger has been a CARDA member since 1993.

She will be launching the book at the Revelstoke Ski Swap on Nov. 3.
