Uphill skiing tours are all the rage in the Alps this year, especially among pet lovers who can easily bring their dogs. It's a fun sport that doesn't require ski-lifts, needing only snow and hills, hence the reason canines can participate. It also makes it a really eco-friendly alternative to more traditional alpine skiing.

After a few hours of light climbing made possible with special nets under the skis, kind of like skiers did a century ago. Once at the top, these adventurous athletes can point their skis downhill for a much-deserved ride.

The hiking portion makes it a really enjoyable way to take your time to slow down to enjoy nature at its best. For some, adding a dog to the experience makes it that much more enjoyable. Stats for Skiing With Dogs Trending: Older & Chilly
