Pups on Piste

Pups on Piste – A Ski Season in Italy

ADVENTURE-TRAVEL-WITH-DOGS-KindlePups on Piste – A Ski Season in Italy documents the first three month winter season that we spent in beautiful Monte Rosa, one of the ski areas of the Aosta Valley in northern Italy.

With parables from on piste and off, Pups on Piste tells of my own skiing journey – from tears on a blue run to powder hound, along with how we got a full season on the snow when we, “don’t look old enough to have given up work” – and what we did for Winter Walkies with four pups in tow.

A little-known resort tucked under the second highest peak in Western Europe, one ski magazine placed Monte Rosa in ‘The Top 5 Off Piste Destinations In The World.’

Once there, we get lost, stranded, conduct experiments on the edge of control and take a Back-Country Ski Course in which one instructor’s advice is, “Don’t miss the turn or you’ll go over a cliff.”

Off piste in Monte Rosa – thankfully no cliffs, although when we got lost here, we weren’t so sure…
