Canadian burger joint A&W hit the slopes with their own “Burger Patrol” to “rescue” mountain enthusiasts at the picturesque ski resort in Lake Louise, Alberta.

Unsuspecting skiers and snowboarders were surprised to see A&W’s light-hearted burger ambassador named Ryan in the middle of their runs. He also managed to rescue skiers stranded on a stopped chairlift.

The Burger Patrol was complete with a hard-working St. Bernard, Martin, whose barrel contained a piping hot Teen Burger replacing the traditional remedies. They were also equipped to handle any “emergency” with the help of a giant 6-foot-tall takeout bag on a sled to help deliver warm burgers all over the mountain.

WARNING: This is hard to watch.

The exciting stunt took place under the helpful watch of the resort staff, and the actual ski patrol was ready to intervene if any real emergency emerged. The unexpected burger delivery also gave a few snowboarders the chance to try a new grab mid-trick on the hill.
