Awesome! Very jealous here.

Have you ever hit your dog on a run? If I took my dog out there, he would just stand right in the way every time.

That is the biggest danger snowboarding with your dog is clipping them. My previous dog got clipped bad by a snowboarder and it severed his achilles tendon. It was a pain getting him out, but the vet was able to fix him up. After about $1k in bills. Worth every penny though.

So you have to be willing to stop in the worst spots at times. Cody is pretty good about staying out of my way. Usually a few verbal commands and he dodges out of my way. Dude was excited since it was the first day out, so he was a little more in my way than usual. He loves getting out there as much as anyone.

Very jealous, I wont be riding for at least another month. SOmetimes we dont have riding here till christmas.

And powder like that, well i wont see powder till march (Cant wait for the yearly trip to utah.)

I've always wondered how my dog would handle chasing on the mountain.

I do intend on taking him on a small hill with me somewhere and seeing what happens (I live in toronto, Ontario) so no real backcountry here, but i can go to a ski resort of the past and just walk or drive up if theres a road.

He's a beagle, so I would worry less about hitting him and more about him getting distracted by a squirrel and running off. Hes pretty good off leash in the park (only took 5 years of constant frustration, approximately 30 combined hours of my life spent calling for him in the park, and another 30 hoping he would show up at the house), but if i lost him while snowboarding he would be too far from home to find his way back.

I'm also not sure if beagles are physically up to chasing, maybe for an hour, but i dont think he could last much more than that in the snow.
