Frequently Asked Questions:

What kind of events does Bernie attend?

If you have an event, Bernie can add to it.

Basically, you can think of Bernie as the sprinkles on the cake for your event.

When should I send my request?

We find that its best for both of us if you send your request about one month in advance. Bernie's Calendar fills up fast. If your event is flexible on date and time, let us know on the form. That will help us work with you to get Bernie out for your event.

Trying to plan far in advance? We can hold your time and date for you and as long as we don't have an official team event pop up we will reach back out a month before your event to finalize details.

I submitted a request, now what?

About Bernie

  • Name: Bernie
  • Breed: St. Bernard
  • NHL Debut: October 3, 2009
  • Birthplace: Summit County
  • Hometown: Denver, Colorado
  • Home: Bernie's Dog Park on Main Concourse, Ball Arena
  • Height: 6'5"

Bernie was born in Summit County in a litter of five puppies. His brothers and sisters loved playing in the snow, but Bernie kept running to the hockey rink at the base of the mountain. After many attempts to bring Bernie back to the slopes, the Ski Patrol knew his love was really ice, not snow. The Patrol brought Bernie to an Avalanche home game where he saw a perfect sheet of NHL ice. And it was love at first sight. Bernie had found his new home.

Bernie now stands as the proud mascot for the Colorado Avalanche. True to his breed, Bernie is devoted to his team as a symbol of integrity, strength, and loyalty. Beware of drool, it is unavoidable. He is a gentle giant amongst the community for all ages.
