Catching Air

Catching air today on the trails at Vail Pass.
(catching air for the Siberians, not me - phew :-)
Synchronized Airborne Siberians - what a beautiful sight!

It is always a fast day when we visit Vail Pass as we spend most of the outing on zippy snowmobile trails. Even the "snowshoe up route" was packed & fast today too!

Going up Shrine Pass via the snowshoe trail - narrow but packed & fast!
Fast days lead to everyone doing their preferred "cool off antics" at our turnaround point.
Max rolling snow angels and Zorro chomping down on snowcones.
More going fast, this time along the Lime Creek snowmobile trail.

Today's outing was roughly 11 miles. Here's a fun video of Max & Zorro still going fast "11 miles later" as we approach the trailhead. Everyone slows to a nice trot when we get close to the busy parking lot - good boys!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

A zoomie day covering 10.8 miles with 1400 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH.

2013/2014 Season to Date: 73 days on the trails covering 628.6 miles and 74,250 feet of elevation climbed.
