“Imagine, being all alone, just you and your pup, you’re looking up at billions of stars and you can sleep wherever you want. The air is so fresh, you feel like a new person. It’s the most precious moments with my dog. Thats why I love skiing at night, under the stars far away from any city lights. Those moments are truly something everybody should try at least once with their dogs,” says Vikse.
