I love seeing dogs when I'm touring around the mountains. After this weekend, however, my thoughts changed. Pick up your dog's shit! No one wants to cruise around in new snow and come across a steaming pile of dog shit! If you can take the time to bring your dog out there and have the responsibility to own a pet, then clean up after it!

After you bag it, you don't even have to be the one to carry the poop out. If you make your dog wear a pack, he can carry his own poop :)

Me and the pup were out hunting for powder yesterday, in fact . . .

The only thing worse than seeing dog shit on the trail is seeing dog shit in a plastic bag that the dog owner forgot to pick up on the way out.

If your going to bring your avy poodle skiing pack out it's shit.

I feel your pain. I became furious the last time I went backcountry skiing.

Rabbit turds, deer crap, coyote shit, even elk turds EVERYWHERE!
At least the damn bears have the decency to hibernate and recycle their waste.

Your backcountry ski areas are great!

I know most of you from the Front Range will have something witty to say about this. But down here, we are trying in everyway to not have the western slope look like that clusterfuck you have up there. This is just one of those ways;)

Also, TWK, you sound like an idiot comparing it to wildlife scat. If you've come across this, then you know what I''m talking about.

There's nothing sexy about elk turds!

Friggin Elk Turds!

We give them signs to cross the road, and they simply can't even do that right. We should start charging elk. Jaywalking turding elk herds

Yea, you too. Get to it. I hear dying holes are in fashion, and they are clearly the only way to reduce the major waste, which is everything humans do.

Maybe the solution is more dog poop, not less. If we can get more dog poop to pop the creator who I shall name "poopsicle" will bestow us with another 7,000 years.

Who doesn't want another 7,000 years?

Even the dogs want another 7,000 years
Long live the poopsicle.

Dog owners don't think their dog's shit stinks.

Not just a Front Range attitude I'm afraid.

I sympathize, actually. I can't stand all of the dog turds in the snow either, or humans that piss along the side of the trail and don't have the common courtesy to toss a little fresh snow over their yellow drill holes. Yecccch. I do. You'd never know where I peed when I'm up at Brainturd Lake. Also love large dogs trying to jump on me as I ski down Lefthand Reservoir road.

Hey, waitaminute! This is another dog thread like the ones about dogs at the crags. Crap. Sucked in again. Now I have dog hair all over me.

Maybe, maybe not, but I'm still trying to figure out what JohnyQ was talking about.

Now that I think about it, it would have to be a split board.
