We did two laps around our favorite little "zoom loop" today. Zoom, zoom, zoom!
|Out-stretched, airborne sprinting Siberians -wheeee!|
This little zoom loop is tucked away in the forest and requires a technical ski in and out to use. But it is always worth it!

Once we get to the zoom loop, we are rewarded with a 2 mile speed loop that we did twice today. Here is a fun video excerpt from the speedway. Yes, my right ski is often in a snowplow position for control even though we are topping 23 MPH - Siberian Acceleration at its best!

Go fast or chase squirrels, which do you think would win? Max & Zorro are such good & focused skijoring machines!

or drift off trail. "Go fast" clearly wins over "chase squirrel" - they have their priorities right!
Done with our two zoom loops, time for the technical exit out of the forest:
|"Did you say technical? Ok, let's go off road!" declares Max looking at the possibility of skiing|
down the ravine to the left (silly Max :-)
