10 YEARS HAVE PASSED SINCE THE FIRST YETI DOLL WAS UNVEILED

Each Carnival they grow in personality, flair, popularity and value. This year we bring you Ski Patrol Pat, a yeti whose undeniable charm and charisma is a salute to some of our finest winter first responders, the outstanding men and women of Ski Patrol!

As you may have noticed, Pat comes with a genuine Whitefish Mountain Resort ski pass, collector’s pins, emergency whistle to keep you in line, skis to chase after you should you make poor choices, and of course the hallmark yeti visage only a yeti mother could love.

Whether you take your yeti flaming hot or icy cold, you are invited to bid on Ski Patrol Pat in our online auction, staring Monday, January 30 at 11am and ending on Friday, February 3 at 5pm. Bid early and often, all monies raised go to support Whitefish Winter Carnival!
