About Bernie

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.
