Topping 26 MPH as we fly along the trail on Bald Mountain (aka Baldy)!
Sprinting Siberians above, GPS summary below. Zoom!

We typically top 26 MPH a couple of times a season. It takes a combination of 4 things for us to top 26 MPH: (1) a packed powder or groomed trail; (2) a wide trail; (3) a long straightaway on the trail (e.g., you don't want to be going 26 MPH into a blind curve :); and (4) two fast Siberian Huskies. We always have #4; but our route on Baldy today brought us the fun combination of the first 3 criteria and zoooooom we went!

Opening up the throttle on a packed powder trail along Baldy - topping 26 MPH as we go. Wheeee!

A fun addition to our favorite trails developed this past summer. A single track trail was installed to connect the west facing side of Baldy to Sally Barber Mine on the north facing side. As a result, we can now skijor west Baldy, Sally Barber and French Gulch in one outing! Nice!
Trotting along the new single track connector. We have to keep speeds under control as it
is a tight weave through the forest; but well worth it to connect some of our favorite trails into one!

After connecting Baldy to Sally Barber, it is then "zoom again" on the fast Sally Barber Trail:
Flying... wheeee!

A fun & fast day overing 8.6 miles with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 26 MPH!

2015/2016 Season to Date: 24 days on the trails covering 198.7 miles with 20400 feet of elevation climbed.
