We see many different types of skis, x-country; backcountry, telemark, even alpine!!
I get pulled behind two dogs in my first lesson in Skijourning.
I get pulled around the Village by two expert skijourning dogs, Kassie & Komet..
Kassie & Komet pull me past the "8 tree" cabin.
Tessie is trained to ski at 'heel', so skijourning was not her cup of tea!
These two can really move!! Watch our film "Skijourning 101"
Heather entices two visiting dogs in harness to 'pull'
And then THEY get to pull their owner through the Village.
