Bluebird Day

A fabulous bluebird day on the trails today!
Airborne Zorro hopping through the deep powder.
Max has just landed his hop into shoulder deep powder.
Snow covered Breckenridge Ski Resort in the foreground with clouds burning off.
Blue skies as far as the eye can see.

Today was pretty much the definition of bluebird day: 10+ inches of fresh powder from yesterday matched with crystal clear blue skies for today - beautiful!
Laying fresh tracks as we round a shady corner. A couple of clouds from this angle to
burn off in the morning sun; but it is still mostly blue all around.

Did I mention 10+ inches of fresh snow to go along with the blue skies...
Breaking trail on an absolutely gorgeous morning!
Still breaking trail, still dipping in & out of the tree shadows from the sunny day.

We were breaking trail most of the day in deep powder. But, we did have a few "shallow patches" to pick up the speed...
Fresh tracks and blue, blue, blue sky.
An old abandoned mine from the 1800s is in view to the right.

A bluebird day with trail breaking in 10+ inches of snow for most of the outing! 6.9 miles with a mild 600 feet of elevation climbed as we kept to primarily flat terrain to enjoy the sun & snow.

2014/2015 Season to Date: 16 days on the trails covering 123.1 miles and 13500 feet of elevation climbed.
