The Wasatch Backcountry Rescue group is made up of Ski Area Professionals from the Utah based resorts and industry professionals. WBR members train, test and respond to back country rescues together. Members that respond to mountain related accidents and avalanche response volunteer to go into the back country for the local county sheriffs agencies.
WBR has a high standard of excellence and only allows members that are full time paid professionals working in the Wasatch Mountains in Utah. Together WBR has more then 200 professional members and 45 certified rescue dogs that respond for 5 county sheriffs agencies in Salt Lake, Summit, Weber, Wasatch and Utah counties.
