Black Dog's favorite time of the year -- SNOW TIME! This weekend we sorted the toques, gloves, skis, boots, skijoring harness, bungee cord, winter treatie bag, blanket and towels for the car. Tomorrow we collect the ski passes. And on Thursday, the Callaghan valley opens and Hudson and I hit the Nordic trails!! This year he's aiming for more than the 85 days he got on his pass last year. Think we'll make it?
