October Three-fer

Wednesday was our third day in a row of rich powder skijoring in mid-October!

We weren't "first tracks", but there was plenty of snow to go, go go...

After our trail breaking Mon/Tue on Rabbit Ears Pass, we arrived back in Breckenridge Tuesday afternoon to find a steady snowfall through the day and into the night. We awoke Wed morning to a good 4-5 inches of new snow at home, so off to the local trails we went...

We had a wonderful ride up & down to Sally Barber Mine and up & back in French Gulch. Skijoring 3 days in a row in October - what a Siberian Treat!

Zoom we go, topping out at 18 MPH, along the Sally Barber trail.

Max & Zorro taking us up the left side of the trail, "Hey bro look - untouched snow on
this side of the trail!"

We only had time for a quick outing today - but it was still an amazing third day in a row in mid October! 6.7 miles with 650 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.

And, the forecast for Thu night is more snow! Oh boy, we hope to be back on the trails to continue our amazing October run on Friday...
