Take dog backcountry?
Ok well for starters I'm only calling it backcountry because there isn't a ski lift or designated run but it's Loveland pass here in Colorado. You hitchhike up the pass maybe a few miles, get dropped off and can either hike or just put your board on and ride but at the very most you may get a 10 minute ride going fast and you plop down right where you parked. I want to take my dog and let her chase me down the hill but I wonder how dogs do in that kind of powder? She is a very wiley little Aussie shepard/Border Collie mix. She loves snow, but I've never put her through that type of a strong workout. Too much for a dog to chase me on the board? Has anybody brought their medium sized dogs snowboarding in 12" of powder or much more? I've picked people up hitchhiking there with there dogs and the dogs seemed to be having the time of their lives but I'd like to hear some experiences if there are any.
