I am with phillips on this one, why coop your dog up in the car while you are at the resort? Do you keep them in your car while at work during the week?
Take 'em backcounty, although they tend to put holes in your wax track, bring a spray bottle of pam or something for long hair dogs. I ended up carrying my first Luke down steamboat after a hogan park trek because he high centered.

Its called a Lurk. Its what the old Norwegians used before we cut em up into two pieces

My ski days are typically 10-12 hours, longer than I leave my dog during work. There is usually 3-4 hours in the car during that time where he can be with us. He truely does live for our love and affection and would rather be spend that 3-4 hours with us than 10-12 alone. Plus he gets to run around a little bit in a new environment which is more fun for him then my back yard. Plus I enjoy spending time with him.

Yo Mike/Liz,

Abasin or the Challenger Lot at Mary Jane is the place for dogs. They can chill in the car (no different than them sleeping in your living room at home) while you ski a few laps. Then come back for brews, lunch, or whatever and let the dog run around. As for backcountry, I have had trouble with Nokhu in deep snow, he postholes and can't keep up. Awesome during corn harvesting season though, if your dog ends up anything like mine (hyperactive herder) he will chase the first person down and then run back up to chase the second. Take him up snowshoeing or on a tour to get a feel for how he does in the snow!

Thanks a lot for all the input guys! All of this is super helpful. A-basin is gonna be my resort of choice this year. As for backcountry, we'll take him snow-shoeing like Josh said and see how he does! Hopefully see all of you up! Look out for the Volvo with a fatty rack and a cute dog inside this winter at A-basin!

I bought some boots for my dogs when working the back country. Maybe more of an issue with labs, but had some split pads on ice.

Have fun!

Yeah, be very careful about where they are while you're skiing. My old Malamute used to love going backcountry with us, but he got a little ahead of us on a packed out section on Bethoud and cut across my buddy's line, who couldn't quite avoid him - he ended up getting sliced in the leg and getting stitches. It almost severed a tendon- nicked it, but luckily it didn't sever it. THAT would have been super traumatic and very expensive....

Yup, can't agree more Flaco. Hit the Hanna Bear one day and had to get her stiched up and almost cut through the tendon in her leg. She was ahead of me and turn back into me as I was cutting away from the direction I "thought" she was going. Also lost Barkley, King of the Black Bastards, one day up on top of Loveland Pass. He followed after a friend of mine who took off before me and when I got to the bottom he was there without the dog. He didn't realize that Barkley was behind him. In big powder it's a lot of work for them to run through that stuff and you have to stop and give them rests. Their running and your just gliding. I'd say I've learned to do a few runs to let the dog's have fun but you have to remember them during those runs. If you wanna go hard leave the dog in the car.
