We had a layer of slush atop the trails on our run at Vail Pass this morning.
For the first time this magical 2013/2014 skijoring season we can see deteriorating conditions suggesting that we really won't be able to skijor through the summer :-)
|You can see the tracks Max & Zorro are laying in the slush layer.|
Slush is wet & heavy which means it slows the outing as it is extra work to run through
(think about running on sand, that is similar to running on slush)

Any problems with the slush layer slowing us down? Let's ask...
|"Nope! No problem. Still on snow on May 25th and we are as happy as can be!"|
exclaim my snow loving pals.
A fun, albeit slush slowed, run atop Vail Pass today covering 7 miles with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a modest top speed of 16 MPH.
