Parker & Amy

Six-time Olympic Gold Medalist, Amy Van Dyken – Rouen, had this to say about Parker Palooza:

Parker the Snow Dog is the official mascot of Loveland Ski Area and has befriended various Denver
Broncos, Colorado Rockies, and news personalities across the country. One of Parker’s passions is
spending time with Colorado’s disabled community. It is common to see Parker at RMV every Wednesday in the summer, sharing love, hugs, and pets with the attending campers.

Parker Palooza is looked forward to for humans and dogs!
