We invented a new game on the trails today: Catch the Groomer!
|Sprinting along the freshly groomed terrain as we encounter the groomer waddling along|
Short video clip of playing Catch the Groomer. Flying along the trails until we catch him from behind and have to stop to give it another head start - wheeee!

Max took lead most of the way in (when it gets extremely deep, Max & Zorro trade off who gets the most trail breaking work in the front of the group):

Once to the loop, it is fast, fast, FAST as we did two laps around this course:
|Flying! Love to open it up on fast & easy groomed terrain.|
Zorro then took lead most of the way out:
|Back to single-file trail breaking. You can see the ski runs of Breckenridge Ski Resort coming|
into view across the valley.
Catch the Groomer - what a fun game:
|"The 'catch' was the most fun!" say my happy partners as we are paused once again to give|
the groomer another head start (note the groomer just ahead of us on the trail).
