Boot Skiing [defined]: find a nice downhill patch of "summer snow" on the Breck Ski Resort. Attach your Siberians (in harness) to your waist, bend your knees and lean back in a squatting position. Tell the Siberians to "go" and get propelled down the ski run without having to lift your feet - Boot Skiing!
It's a blast, but boy is it a workout on the human's knees...
|Beginning our "boot skiing" down a "blue run" leaving Peak 9 Restaurant|
on Breckenridge Ski Resort.
|Stopping for a quick "cool off" in a roaring creek of snow runoff.|
We had to hike quite a ways up the Breckenridge Ski Mountain before
finding snow good enough to boot ski on.
|Finally - encountered some significant snow on the hike up.|
Not enough to boot ski yet, but plenty for Zorro to "snow angel" in!

a good "boot ski" path down...
