"There is snow - we must use it!" declared my Siberian partners & I. So, we broke out the sled (instead of the skis) today and pulled the dog sled up from Peak 9 to Vista Haus (high up on Peak 8) and then sprinted down from Vista Haus over to Peak 7 before connecting down to the base area on Peak 8. Wheee!

The Siberians are pulling hard and giving it their all to go up the steep terrain.
|About to start the steep descent down. Hang on....|
|Flying downhill. I was "riding the sled brake" the entire way down and we still hit a|
top speed of 19 MPH - wow!
|We encountered some skiers skinning up the runs to ski down themselves. They had to stop|
and ask about our setup (Siberians + sled). Zorro says, "They sure are impressed with Max & I!"
A fun little day making use of the snow still available on the ski resort: 5 miles with 1700 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 19 MPH.
