Perfect Day

Single digit temperatures & shallow powder to packed powder trails all day.
A perfect day for 10 miles of skijoring!
Zooming along a slight rise in the trail.
So fun to be towed uphill!

We spent the morning gliding around the trails at Swan Valley. The snow was fresh with recent snowmobile tracks making for a fast & packed powder day.

A short video clip of the day's great conditions.

Of course, one of the highlights of this set of trails is encountering dog sled teams from Good Times Adventures. Here we are pausing on a close by trail to watch a team go by. Notice all the heads from the team are looking at us too :)
"Hi guys! Great day for a run, huh?" say the 10 sled dogs (Max, Zorro & the 8 dog team)
exchanging friendly glances on the trail.

Everybody having fun?
"Why YES!!! Glad you asked!" responds giddy Max.
"Absolutely; but why are we stopped?" says 'ready to go' Zorro.
A perfect skijor run today covering 10.1 miles with 1050 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH.

2014/2015 Season to Date: 43 days on the trails cover 354.2 miles with 38,450 feet of elevation climbed.
