A day of the Nines on Boreas Pass: 9 miles run, 900 feet of elevation and 19 MPH top speed...
Nice view of Breckenridge Ski Resort across the valley from us as we jog along Boreas Pass Rd.

The day's outing consisted of both "narrow, barely 2 Siberians wide" trails and "wide open, fast packed" trails. A fun combination of two types of terrain.

The outing started gliding through the forest on the narrow Bakers Tank Trail. This trail was barely 2 Siberians wide and made for a fun, shoulder-to-shoulder trot through the trees:
Thick forest, narrow trail - having fun jogging shoulder-to-shoulder.

Eventually we transitioned out of the forest and onto the wide Boreas Pass Trail. We jogged up Boreas for a bit then did a quick "snow angel cool off" before starting the final 4 mile run down Boreas Pass Rd.
"Aahhh, rolling snow angels to cool off before starting the final 4 miles of the day!" express
the snow angel rolling pair.

The Boreas Pass Trail is usually wide, packed and fast - zoom!

A short video clip of the wide, fast & packed Boreas Pass. The entire portion of the outing on Boreas looked pretty much just like this fun little clip...

And, finally, a fun "clip from the front" captured by Nancy as we were finishing the day's run at the Boreas Pass Trailhead:
