Choose clean snow. Careful where the huskies go.

I wouldn't do it. From a micro-biologist's standpoint, you don't know what is in the snow. Did it fall through pollution air? Is it sitting on the ground where microbes live? It's not just where the dogs pee, but where the raccoons poop that you have to consider. When you're pregnant, strive to ingest no chemical nor potential source of infection, no matter how clean it may appear. Sorry -- not this year...
