Baby is not able to ski yet (she’ll be in ski school next year) so while we were out skiing and snowboarding, she was with my mom strolling the town and being spoiled. Even though life isn’t bad for this 2-year old, we decided to do a family activity and go husky dog sledding. The dogs were so beautiful, their eyes were like glass.
I don’t know what my Grouchy Husband and I were thinking when we showed up with jeans, riding boots, and dress boots. Everyone else was in full ski gear and snow boots. It was like a scene from city slickers.
First, you are given a dog sledding lesson and then the group goes out on a dog sled ride. The girls and I rode in the guide’s dog sled and my Grouchy Husband had his own dog sled. Because he is not experienced, we could not go in his sled. We were late to the lesson because we had gone to the wrong dog sled company so my Grouchy Husband got the accelerated version. I was worried because we had seen so many people fall off their sleds.
Even in jeans and dress boots, my Grouchy Husband did a great job on his sled. He almost looks like a professional dog sledder in this pictures if he wasn’t wearing jeans.
The guide didn’t speak much English. He asked us “good?” every once in a while and when we would go fast or down a steep hill, he would shout “Yoohoooo!”. I think this is the French version of “Yahoo!”. The girls and I would giggle every time he did it.
We were the last group for the day so we got to spend time taking pictures while the dogs were loaded into the car.
After the ride, the girls played with the dogs and their little snow hut.
Dog sledding was so much fun. It was the girl’s favorite activity.
