This video will make you happy. There’s not much better than ripping fun backcountry powder with a playful pup. There’s something about sharing the backcountry with your dog that just makes you happier. And you don’t have to walk the dog that night.
For many years, I backcountry skied with my old dog Hidatsa. She skied with me for over 14 years and I miss her every time I go out there. We’d skied together in every western state and province and she never once said she didn’t want to go skiing.
