Video: Sun Dog

Dogs can shred, too. And it’s about time they got their starring role in an artful and action-filled short. DPS’s latest installment of Cinematic does just that, with Conga shredding steeps and powder around Argentina’s Refugio Frey alongside skier Santiago Guzman. His turns are nice, but the excitement in Conga’s eyes, ears and tail as she bounds through powder transcend to another level of joy. TK, Follow, Niva, Finley and the other Backcountry office dogs approve.
