Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Ullr's sled-dog heritage on show today on the transition in uber cold temps

Think Ullr should have had a snorkel today in the deep powder

Was really tough climbing in the deep snow and breaking trail today and at times when it wasn't that steep had to straight-line it with the snow rising up to my thighs.

But we had a couple of pitches that were very sweet and out of the corner of my eye I could see him submarining Laughing

During the up-hill does he follow in the ski track or leap around in it?

That's really good for a dog. He has the standard technique: breathe when you're at the top of the turn.

@Rogerdodger, if it's not deep then he does his own thing, honing around all over the place, probably doing double the distance, but yesterday he decided that following in my tracks was the sensible option.

We're going back up again soon, so I hope it will be a little easier climbing up in my track from yesterday, though it's quite grim out there.

 So if you're just off somewhere snowy come back and post a snow report of your own and we'll all love you very much

Back up the hill today and there was a really cold wind blowing along with already very cold temperatures.

And as we were transitioning he walked round in circle digging a snow-hole and then curled up.

This was in fact the second occurence, but this one was way deeper!

Does he enjoy it, or is he just desperate not to lose you?

@pam w, dogs just love snow, simple as that!

Back in the UK I did the Saturday Park Runs along the promenade with him on a harness with around 350 runners as the start neared he could sense the anticipation and he started howling just like the sled dogs do with the excitement of it all.

@KenX, also had his mutt with us and both of them are just playing all the time going up.

Last week touring up the pistes at Montgenevre we've never seen so many dogs out!

And I have to be careful if another skier comes past and we've stopped as he might well chase after them Laughing

@pam w, all of our dogs have loved the snow. Our old one Meg used to dig into it like that. I do have friends whose dogs don't. Even our cat likes it.

@Weathercam, looks like he's really landed on his paws.

Is it right that huskies send extra blood through their foot pads to help them keep cool? A very bonny and contented looking dog. What a life. I'm jealous Laughing Laughing

Not sure he’s got Ullr’s powder pedigree but took our pooch out for some ski tour action. Was a bit worried he was knackered at the top of the climb but he loved the descent and didn’t seem particularly tired in the evening

@BobinCH, great stuff, he's loving it!

I gave Ullr a day off yesterday.

The resort is now open from today so will have to do more classic touring, and I will not be able to take him XC as he will, unlike the Jack's, trash the piste.
