It’s our first winter in our new home in Sweden. The fall was a busy time, we spent nearly every evening and weekend building pens, dog houses and creating a big playarea for the dogs. Now, when all the work is finally done, we have time to enjoy the best of winter – February, March and April!
The village where we live is situated only a couple of miles from the coast which means we enjoy a fairly mild climate and get plenty of snow. With a dump of fresh snow nearly every day this winter the trails are smooth, soft and not too fast – ideal conditions for skijoring with a team of eager Malamutes!

Looks like we will be having plenty of snow this winter. :)
You can see our two locations on the map; Nedre Bäck in the north of Sweden, and the village of Hetta in Finnish Lapland in the north of Finland.
