Cross Country Skiing with Dogs

December 27, 2010

While there are very legitimate reasons that dogs shouldn't be allowed on cross-country ski trails, trekking along with your dog over freshly groomed tracks while snow flakes land softly on your face couldn't be more invigorating for you and for your dog.

Here are our favorite spots to cross country ski with our dogs:

Teton Canyon, Driggs, Idaho.
Groomed almost daily, this dog friendly, 13 kilometer out and back track will bring you views that won't let you down. The trailhead is off ski hill road at the end of Teton Canyon Road. See http://www.tvtap.org/skiing for updates on grooming.


Blacktail, Lakeside, Montana
Groomed about every other day, there are a few loops and and out and back that offers stunning views of Flathead Lake. There is a lower and an upper trailhead off the road to Blacktail ski area. See http://northshorenordic.org/Default.htm for updates.

As always, even when dogs are permitted on trails, if they are punching holes in the tracks, please take your dog back to the car.

Tell us your favorite place to ski with your dog.

A Love Letter To A Dog On Valentine's Day

February 14, 2017

Dear Dog,

It has come to my attention, in this month of love, that before the boyfriends, girlfriends, children, jobs and moves, there was one thing that has loved me through it all: you!

You patiently waited all day for the squeak of the door to open on the first day of my new job. You heavily nosed my significant other as to say "welcome" on our first date. You've laid with me as I cried, licked...
