Sophie Leiter (left), drives a rescue toboggan during a high angle glade rescue training. Working in unison under the supervision of student-elected Ski Patrol Co-President, Jesse Klinck, the patrol team belays a simulated patient from above, keeping tension on the rope, while Sophie uses the "Falling Leaf" technique to guide the toboggan gracefully through a steep section glades under the Allen trail. Trainings in many varying scenarios of mountain rescue happen every weekend at the Middlebury College Snow Bowl. (Herald / Seth Butler)
