Curt (above) pioneered a whole new sport today we call sit-skijoring.

Skijoring is when a person is on skis and tethered to a harnessed dog that pulls them. Sit-skijoring is when a person is on a "sit-ski" - the blue device above. Curt is using his strong upper body balance and the outrigger skis with his arms to steady himself side to side.

Moon is happily pulling him across the lake.
