Step 1: Prepare Yourself
1 dog harness
1 bungee cord
1 dog leash
1 fanny pack or belt
1 pair of nordic skis and boots
1 pair of poles
1 dog that's ready to pull!
Prepare yourself physically: dress warm and, depending on your skiing ability, balance, and obediance of chosen dog, you may consider wearing a helmet or other safety gear. ;)Put on skis, boots, poles, and the belt or fanny pack (a good opportunity to show off your inner geekiness)
Prepare yourself mentally: Get ready for an adventure!
Pick your location:I went out on our frozen, snow-covered lake because the conditions there are amazing, but it may be easier to find cross-country trails at a ski resort. Just make sure dogs are allowed on the trails.
