Les Rando Chiens - new meaning to the phrase "Dog Groomers"

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Have had a cunning plan formulating in my mind the last couple of days as right in front of us they have been preparing a piste (90% artificial) coming back down into resort from one of the high lifts.

So as dogs are interdit on piste when they are open seemed like a good option to skin up today prior to them opening tomorrow.

I also chose just to go around 11:30 as was pretty sure piste bashers would not be operating as they all have to go to lunch and over recent seasons the piste bashers now seem to operate with a fixed cable, so they do tend to get a little health and safety conscious believe it or not when one is skinning up and last week in Montgenevre ski tourers were not allowed up one piste where they working.

The pistes were in pristine condition as it's so cold and have to say was almost as good as powder, but made very special by just me and the Rando Chiens being up there.

Hence "Dog Groomers" Smile

Will hopefully be more of the same for a few days next week when the resort is closed till the main opening on the 16th - tomorrow onwards is a long weekend opening to entice the Italians over as it's St Ambrose Festival (patron Saint of Milan).

Absolutely love the dog pics. Had a JR years ago. Proper characters. Can also be horrible little baskets too. But I guess that's the charm.

Wouldn't change em though. Ours used to snarl and show his teeth even if you just stood up to go in the kitchen and make a brew. Laughing

Brilliant dogs. Been toying with the idea of getting the olduns one for too long. I'd want to meet the parents though, and the breeder.

@Weathercam, It must be time for a 'rando chien cam' so we can get a doggies eye view (and critique your technique Twisted Evil ). There must be a go pro pooch mount somewhere!

@chocksaway, it's about to happen but a birds eye view, and I suspect not something you'd approve of.
Except have had a few frustrating teething issues with the hardware, software and general user cock error rolling eyes

@Weathercam, if only you'd found a little model piste bashed and harness for them to pull it with..

Ha only kidding - love the photos, but the look on their faces on the picnic bench makes it for me.

@Weathercam, I don't disapprove as long as its flown with common sense, away from all other life forms and not in a national park. In the hands of your average punter in a ski resort a drone is potentially lethal. As for the one flown outside my bedroom window by a visitor at the hotel next door I think the line "Who is the pervert with the drone" at 120 decibels transcended at least 10 languages. That was after I failed miserably to down it with a series of snowballs!

@chocksaway, I agree. Can't go into National Parks touring with dogs anyway. Just want some nice 15sec vista shots etc
I'm almost too embarrassed to get it out (the drone that is) when other people might be about!

oh wow, fab pics. I love your terriers, I have a special place in my heart for wire haired terriers. Be careful though I was told here on snowheads I was a complete fool for thinking it was ok to ski with dogs, rolling eyes . I think it has to be massive fun, and envy you the ability to bring yours out.

So true. I have always had a JR, they are smarter than the average dog. Mine rule the roost, and when I had a JR and a Great Dane at the same time, the JR would bully the Dane so much. They hate piddling outside in wet weather too. So ya need to watch them like a hawk.
