Sports Car

Today's skijoring outing consisted of driving the "Siberian Sports Car" on fast & curvy roads.

The trademarks of a sports car: cornering and acceleration. Well, we had both today...

Accelerating beautifully into an uphill corner.
Nice handling in this Siberian Sports Car! :-)
Punching the gas pedal on an open road.

We had a trace to 1/2 inch of snow overnight. That was just enough to reset the trails from a weekend of extensive use. A light layer of powder atop a hard packed trail - that is the perfect conditions to test the handling of a Siberian Sports Car.

We took a tour up & down Sally Barber Mine and the up & back in French Gulch. Most of the trail was hard packed with a light layer of fresh powder - zoooom! A few areas of the trail had been beaten down to exposed rocks (boo!).

A pit stop to roll the Max Engine in snow to cool off.
The Zorro Engine, on the other hand, is still full of gas and ready to roll!

A quick outing covering 6.8 miles with 700 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 19 MPH.
