But those are a breeze for one enthusiastic Australian Shepherd, who shows off some impressive sledging abilities that even some humans aren't capable of.
In the footage, Secret the three-year-old pooch drags a blue sledge to the top of a snowy hill by her teeth.

Once Secret gets to the peak of the steep hill she drops the sledge at her feet and takes a run up and jumps on to it.
She flies down the hill with all four feet firmly on the blue board, showing a fine display of balance as she makes it all the way down to the very bottom.
Clearly enjoying it, the pooch hops off the sledge and immediately starts dragging it up the hill as she gets ready to go again.
The video was uploaded to Instagram by @my_aussie_gal and has been viewed 140,000 times.
Her owner, Mary, dedicates the social media account to her friendship with Secret and the pair have 282,000 followers.
Mary said her pup went down the hill about 50 times in her caption on the video.
She wrote: 'Sledding. We finally got enough snow to really sled yesterday and Secret couldn't be more thrilled! It's definitely one of her favorite activities, she probably went down this hill 50 times today.'
