All Conditions

We had the full range of conditions today skijoring at Vail Pass: breaking trail, narrow single tracks and fast groomed tracks; and, to top it off, we surpassed 300 miles of skijoring for the season today.

December 6th and we are already to 300 miles - it is gonna be a big total this season!

It was "single file skijoring" early on as the set track was narrow with deep snow
on the sides.
It was "shoulder to shoulder breaking trail" as we got further into the terrain.
It was "hop behind long legged Max" as we got extremely deep for a while.

And, finally, it was a wide open sprint track when we connected onto the groomed
sections of Shrine Pass Rd.

The temperatures during today's outing were below zero to start and single digits when we
finished. That didn't stop the Siberians from rolling snow angels to cool off after we finished
the deep trail breaking and got onto snowmobile tracks.

An aerobic 12.1 miles today with 1800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH - bringing us to 300.7 miles with 34450 feet of elevation climbed for the season to date!
