Postcard View

A "postcard view" today of Breckenridge Ski Resort as we crested at a high point on the mountain across the valley from the ski resort.
Picture perfect blue skies and a view of the ski runs on peaks 6, 7, 8 & 9 of the ski resort
(only Peak 10 is missing from this awesome view).

A busy holiday weekend sent us to some of the more private trails around Breckenridge. It was a huge success as we found ourselves traversing 8.1 peaceful miles to take our total mileage for the season to 600.8 miles. Over 600 miles and we still have the rest of January and all of February, March and April to go (and whatever gifts the snow gods give us for May/June)!

Most of the day found us towing the human shoulder-to-shoulder on narrow trails
barely 2 Siberians wide.
We did find the occasional untouched side trail to lay fresh tracks in the snow!

Max cracked me up at our "turnaround point" - see below:
Max rolling his patented snow angel to cool off at our turnaround point.
This is, of course, perfectly normal for Max. But then...
Zorro rolling a rare snow angel as Max looks back at me to say, "Geez, how long do we
have to wait for this kid? Have you ever seen anything so weird?"
Why, yes Max, I have - YOU!

A peaceful 8.1 miles with 1100 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.

2013/2014 Season to Date: 70 days on the trails covering 600.8 miles with 70,950 feet of elevation climbed.
