Good job Lynn, guess I'll have to come and shop🤩

Wish I was shopping there now. Try turning the phone to landscape next time you shoot video.

A star is born !😍

Do you have any sweater skirts or insulated ones to make me look good on the trails?

Love that store!

Awesome!!!

Yayyy!

Right back in form!

This reminds me of a story that happened there some 38 years ago. We were skiing with cousins there and on the one hill; my cousin wiped out at the bottom. Out of nowhere, from the woods; a dog ran up to him; pulled his hat off his head and ran away. Never to be seen again. The dog and his hat. lol

So jeaous!!!!

Yay!

Good boy

I love that you named your dog after Donnie Babcock 😂🐶❤️

Very cool

I have the ski racks on the car😊

DONNIE !! My buddy😛

I have worked countless hours developing Donnie’s mouth eye coordination with dog biscuits. I am glad all that training time is paying off.

Miss this guy!

He must be a great companion #donniesarebest 😀

It's Donnie!!! Can't wait to see him this season!

Forget it Donnie, you're out of your element!

What a good boy! I miss you, pup!

I usually dislike music added to home videos - but this warrants some epic music.

Alex Wandas

Donnie is loving the snow and "Mom" playing catch with him.🐕❄😊
