The midwest finally received a decent snow on Thursday, with Madison receiving about 5 inches of the fluffy stuff.  This was great as we can finally start ski joring on snow (as opposed to the training).  Overall I'd say it went pretty well.  He seems to love running in the snow and doesn't seem to mind dragging some extra weight behind him.  Only once did he pull me to the side and make me fall :)  I think skijoring is definitely going to be part of our winters!
