Nice View

A nice view of Breckenridge Ski Resort from our skijor trails today:
Trotting along laying fresh tracks as Peaks 6, 7, 8 & 9 of Breckenridge Ski Resort come into
view across the valley from us.

MLK weekend is one of the busiest 3 days of the ski season, so we headed to the lesser known trails today. We spent most of the day laying fresh tracks on untouched "side trails" but also had a super fun 2-mile "groomed zoom loop" in the middle of the outing - wheeee!
Out-stretched, sprinting partners pulling me up a slight incline on the groomie zoomie section
of the day's outing.
Opening the throttle into a fast sprint along a decline in the groomie zoomie trail.
Love the snow you can see kicking up behind sprinting Max & Zorro!

The groomed loop is only 2 miles long, so we spent much of the outing climbing up & down untouched side trails:
All smiles looking back at me as we had to turnaround on one of the side trails and head back
down. You can see the open & untouched terrain in front of us - all of the side trails we took
looked similar to this.

A fun day avoiding the crowds while laying fresh tracks and enjoying a short & fast section of groomed trail: 7.8 miles with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 25 MPH.

2014/2015 Season to Date: 62 days on the trails covering 526.6 miles with 57,1000 feet of elevation climbed.
