I always have some hesitation skiing with my dogs. I had run over Rio enough times that stitches were required. Every time I see blood on the snow it reminds me. These days I give myself a break from that anxiety.
I still ski backcountry but without dogs. Sometimes it’s good to slow down enough to notice what you might miss. Snowshoes can take you places that skis cannot or at least where I don’t want to go. I once saw a set of rabbit tracks suddenly transform into a perfect impression of the wings that had carried the poor creature heaven bound.
You know it’s cold on those paws too, best to carry Musher’s Secret Wax to protect them from the ice and snow.
Get out there and explore your world.

Musher’s Secret from Wild Mountain Online

I don’t know about you, but I love a product that you can use for multiple purposes. I like versatility and I like only having to carry one thing around that can prove helpful for many different situations. My new discovery is Musher’s Secret from Wild Mountain Online. Musher’s Secret is a dense, breathable barrier wax. It was originally designed to protect the paws of sled dogs during extreme winter conditions. It helps not only create a wall between the dog’s paws and the snow, but it also prevents snowballing in between the dog’s toes.
Musher’s Secret was soon put to use in different situations. It has proven to be a reliable barrier and paw protectant for not only extremely cold conditions, but extremely hot one’s as well. From snow to sand to hot pavement to hikes in the rocky forest Musher’s Secret will take care of it all. AND not only that, but you can use it on other things as well, such as burns, scratches, fly bitten ears or any other open sore that needs to be protected.
Musher’s Secret is not only for dogs, humans can use it as well. I used it for protection against a blister I obtained while running and a bee sting that my shoe kept rubbing against. It worked famously for both of these issues.
Musher’s Secret is made using 100% natural waxes, is non-toxic and will not stain carpet. Yes, I tested it out and this statement is indeed true, there were no marks on my carpet after applying this to my dog and letting him run around a room full of carpet.
You can purchase Musher’s Secret off the Wild Mountain Online website starting at about $13.00

The dogs had a great day cross country skiing in the Sangre de Cristos. We skied up Aspen Vista to the big rock and skied back. This was Lily’s first ski trip and she did pretty well. As long as the dogs stay behind the skiers then everything is ok. The problems occur if their paws get in the way of the skis. Rio learned that lesson long ago and had a stich or two. Of course we took plenty of Mushers Secret Wax.
