Buffy, a 3-year-old Malamute, had her first chance to pull a sled this weekend, and she was clearly in her element!

Buffy belongs to Denver7 Reporter Kristen Skovira's twin sister.

The sisters took Buffy up to the mountains above Nederland Saturday to see if she would pull a sled.

The sisters and their friends took turns riding the sled and calling to the 110-pound dog. 

It turned out, Buffy is a natural!

Skovira said Buffy got going so fast it was a little bit scary sometimes! 

They played in the snow for about an hour and Buffy was "thrilled," Skovira said.

Skovira said it was such a great outing they plan to do it again next weekend. She said it reminded her of the Nike commercial called "Choose Your Winter."
