About 400 sled dogs, including one with only three legs, took to the snowfields this weekend to mush, gee and haw, at the 26th annual Dinner Plain Sled Dog Challenge.
The two-day event saw Siberian huskies and Alaskan malamutes take to the mountain to show off their strength, agility and bond with their musher.
Organiser Sue Simmons of Altitude 5000 Sleddog Group Inc said the two day event was lucky to run on such a great snow base with good weather across the Saturday and Sunday.

"It was fantastic," she said.
"Saturday started sunny but snowed and was windy later, but the dogs love that environment, it's their natural environment."
As well as the popular six and eight sled dog class, the event also boasted a non-competitive touring class and skijoring, where a person on skis is lead by a dog.
"We had one three-legged dog in the skijoringwho overtook three other people," she said. "It was a really successful weekend, we did have a bit of fun trying to find the trail and put things up in waist deep snow."
