A picturesque view on the mountain side of Port Moody which is located approx. 30 - 45 minutes from downtown Vancouver. Unusual for the city to have a White Xmas and then to continue to have snow right up to New Years Eve.

Snow and more snow in our neighborhood.

Cross country skiing with Cervelo and Lily

Stuart and myself took both Cervelo and Lily up into the forest trails just 10 minutes away from home to do some cross country skiing. This was the first time either Cervelo/Lily had been cross country skiing with us. In Vancouver, to receive this amount of snow all at once is phenomenal and a real snow experience for both myself, Stuart, and Weimanraners. As always, weimaraners take to a new sport with exuberance and enthusiam!! Stuart was taking the video at the time with myself trying to ski with two very exicited weimaraners.

Snow and more snow the perfect winter scene.

Winston warming his chest

Cervelo's journey through the snow....

Stuart took Cervelo up into a forest trail for some exercise. Stuart was trying out his cross country skis as there was enough snow to make hiking a challenge. Cervelo experienced his real first day out in snow, deep snow sometimes up to his chest. There was no hesitation on Cervelo's participation in any way and he took to the snow like a fish to water!

Cervelo trying to keep his ears dry??

Plowing or scenting, not sure what is so interesting under the snow.

Note the curl in Cervelo's ear which is normally hanging down.

An Oops into the snow with a head plant.

Making tracks

With ear flapping Cervelo finds something to dig for in the snow bank.

Where did Stuart go?

All alone in the vast snow field.

Take off with ear flaps up. To move through the snow, Cervelo has to really push forward with his chest moving almost like in a serpentine or undulating motion.

Homeward bound..........
May have to click on picture to see Cervelo's facial expression**

This snow trail went a long ways with Cervelo taking the lead.

A site to behold in city of Vancouver. SNOW......

Cervelo wondering just what is behind the pile of while stuff.

Something under the snow has caught Rose's attention.

This is my stick!

Winston onto a scent.

Scent or Sound ? Only Winston knows.

Weims snow play in the forest.....

Three weims can be seen here, Winston, Lily and Rose were having fun in the snow, the biggest snowfall Vancouver has seen since 1971! Cervelo was with Stuart experiencing the cross country skiing up higher on forest trails.
