Article & Photos by Allie Bynum Over the weekend, the Appalachian Mountains finally got enough snow to act a fool in! A few days earlier, we received five packages from Burley Design. We woke up Saturday morning to a frosty delight of about 5 inches of powdery fluff. Collin and I, excited-like Christmas morning parents, packed up the dogs and baby and headed up to Roan Mountainwhere the snow was sent straight from the heavens above!
I told Collin that we have discovered a new winter sport: Babypacking! Pulling Olin through the snowy woods up the Appalachian Trailto the top of the bald was a blast! The skis that attach under the trailer made it a nearly effortless endeavor! The trailer smoothly glides over snow-packed logs, around thick drift corners, and up steep snowy inclines. The dogs loved it too, as they trailed behind!
We took a few side trips to bust out the snurfer, and man it was lit! We are really digging this whole parenthood thing, especially with outdoor kid-built gear like Burley Design’s We! Ski Kit! Dude, we may have had more fun than Olin. The truth is, the whole fam had a blast on this snow day!
Our first time using Olin’s new Burley trailer was a grand success! Collin safely hooked up the We! Ski Kitin no time, as I zipped Olin’s snowsuit up and got the pups ready. The harness was super comfy to wear, as we pulled Olin up Roan Mountainto 5,826 feet of elevation.
