Kellie and her dog, Luna, share the thrill that skiing together brings – and their must-have gear for skiing with your dog.

The perfect activity for a snow day? Skiing with your dog! While you slide on snow, your dog can bound beside you with his Polar Trex™ boots – and even (attempt to) play fetch with a few snowballs. Better yet, bring along the Hydro Plane™ Throw Toy for easy visibility when playing in the powder. Ruffwear employees Kellie & Luna share what makes skiing together so special for them.

The GO: "Luna and I love to ski together! From the backcountry to groomed trails to urban commuting when it really snows in town, she loves to run at my side while I slide on snow. One of her favorite activities while skiing is playing fetch with snowballs. She has not quite figured out how to bring them back yet, but she continues to try and figure it out."

The GIFT: "The gift of having this experience with Lu is that she reminds me that everything can be an adventure or an opportunity to play. Skiing with her for me is full of smiles, laughter, and play. She encourages me to tap into childlike wonder and joy because snow really is quite magical!"
