Off the Hanger: Backcountry Ski

Backcountry Ski

It’ll be the first year taking the youngin’ out in the woods for a little back country action, so it’s probably time to pony up for that toboggan. Lots of memories growing up of my dad pulling us way back into the woods on one. Anyone have other good methods for the non-skiing kids?
