Zoom Loop

Flying around one of our favorite "zoom loops" this morning - wheeee!
Out-stretched & sprinting skijor partners towing me quickly around the zoom loop!

The "zoom loop" is a groomed oval that sits far back in the forest. You have to backcountry ski in and backcountry ski out; but you get rewarded with an incredible fast loop for your in & out efforts.
Trotting along the narrow trail on our way to the zoom loop.

Work your way to the zoom loop and the following video clip shows what we get rewarded with! Watch as we are flying along the "rolling up/down" zoom loop tucked away in the forest.
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

We did two laps around the zoom loop this morning and then got rewarded with a nice view of Breckenridge Ski Resort on the way back out of the forest:
"Nice view, huh bro?" say Max & Zorro pausing to take in the view of Breck across the valley.

At a quick break point of the day. Everybody having fun?
"Yes! Thanks for asking!" exclaims happy Max.
"I was until you said 'wait'! What do we need a break for?" questions Zorro.

Complex terrain to the zoom loop, 2 fast laps around the loop and then complex terrain again out of the zoom loop: 8.3 miles traveled with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 31 days on the trails covering 259.3 miles with 26650 feet of elevation climbed.
