The newest addition to Loveland Ski Area's ski patrol is five-month-old Border Collie, Bandit, and he's already better at getting on and off of the chairlifts than we are.

Whatever you're doing (or, not doing) at work, take a break to watch this – you won't regret it. Some day, he may save lives, but for now, well he's just really adorable.

He's an avalanche rescue dog in training (that is, if he doesn't eat his vest), but the snow hero in-the-making has being 'stinking cute' nailed already.

Bandit is the youngest four-legged addition to Loveland's ski patrol, joining the likes of Zuma and Bo (seen below), KDVR reported.
