Walkies are snow much fun: adorable dog takes to the slopes

A GoPro camera captured the adorable moment a hyperactive dog bounded down the ski slopes in pursuit of her owner.

The video, filmed at Mt. Hood in Oregon, shows Rosie dashing after her skiing owners in an excitable frenzy.

The camera – attached to the dog’s collar – captures Rosie taking in the views before she takes off down the slope.

Skiing enthusiast Nathan Siegal, rescued Rosie, a two-year-old Golden Retriever-Labrador cross in their hometown of Salt Lake City.

Nathan, 30, said: “Rosie has skied with us three times before this one, she absolutely loves it.

“You can hear on the video when she descends that she is going wild with excitement.”

Despite her young age, Rosie is rapidly becoming a pro at beating her owners, often waiting at the bottom barking for them to hurry up.

And when she isn’t sprinting through the snow, the hilarious hound can be seen rolling in the powder, sending the camera into a dizzying spin.

Nathan added: “We take Rosie out as long as conditions permit.

“When skiing in the backcountry it’s critical to be aware of avalanche danger, and we would only take Rosie out with us during very safe conditions.

“One question I get a lot from non-skiing friends is, how does the dog ride the chairlift?

“But she doesn’t, all of the skiing we do with the pup is human powered, skin up, ski down.”
