2014 Finale

A 9 mile run up & down Boreas Pass this morning to close out 2014.
Our final tally for skijoring January through December 2014.
In general we track our skijoring progress by season (i.e., 2014/2015 season lasting from October 2014 to [hopefully] June 2015). But, it is always fun to look at the past year on December 31st and see what we did for the calendar year. The previous photo gives our skijoring stats for the 2014 calendar year: 149 days on the trails covering 1264.5 miles with 139,700 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 26 MPH. Also, we were "on snow" for 9 of the 12 months of 2014 (only July, August and September were downer months).

Back to today's final outing of 2014. It was a beautiful bluebird day on Boreas Pass. Absolutely stunning views with 100% blue sky all around us! Here are a few of the highlights:

(1) Mid Boreas had a nice packed track allowing me to glide behind Max & Zorro and take in the views:
Snow covered peaks all around us with crystal clear blue sky!

(2) Lower Boreas was its usual packed, wide & fast track:
Zipping along as Breckenridge Ski Resort comes into view on the mountains on the other
side of the valley from us.

(3) Even Upper Boreas was wide enough to zip along:
Just barely "2 Siberians Wide" as we glide along shoulder to shoulder.

Today's outing covered 8.8 miles with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH.

It is always fun to look at the "year in review". Here is our breakdown for 2014:
