Skijoring the Spring Crust from what looks like the Top of the World!
|Love abandoning established trails and making our own path across the spring crust!|
You know you have arrived as a "skijoring team" when you can ski the trees solely on voice command. Max & Zorro are such great sled dogs, they'll weave through the trees with me based on my calls of 'left', 'right', 'forward' and 'easy' (e.g., slow down). We skijored through many groups of tight trees on complete voice control. What a joy these two are!
|"We're listening, tell us how you want to weave!" say my perfect skijor partners towing me|
through tight trees.

|"You bet! Today was a BLAST!" say my ecstatic pair at our turnaround point of the morning.|
