We made it: 5 days in a row of either breaking trail in deep snow or laying fresh tracks in 2-4 inches of snow. We fought off high winds, we fought off busy holiday crowds, we fought of human exhaustion. Thankfully, it is a beautiful sunny day today - rest the human tomorrow and pray for new snow for Sunday...
|High up on the trail connecting Baldy Mountain to Boreas Mountain. Breaking|
trail in snow soooo deep that we need to go single file and let Max lead the way.
Vital Stats: 8.1 miles; 120m total time; 105m skijoring time (that 2.5 mile stretch of extreme trail breaking really slows you down); 19 MPH top speed; 1100 feet of elevation climbed.
|Max taking a quick break to lay & play in the snow before we start our final|
stretch to the Boreas winter trailhead.
|Zorro snacking on the snow to "cool his jets" before we start our final stretch.|
|A look back at our trail breaking fresh tracks as we transitioned out of the woods|
and onto Boreas Pass Rd.
