Work and Play

"Work to Play" skijor on Rabbit Ears Pass this morning.
Opening the throttle on a fresh snowmobile track - wheeee!

We started the day as the first tracks on the trail. This found us laying fresh tracks to breaking trail in 4-6 inches of fresh snow. A fun workout to start the day...
Fresh powder all to ourselves as we work to set reset the trail in the snow.

Fresh tracks to breaking trail is more of a workout than a packed trail; but that does not mean it is not super fun. Paused for a moment, "everyone having a good time?"...
"Absolutely - love laying fresh tracks!" exclaims happy Max.
"Well... I *was* having fun until you paused to ask!!!" says 'why are we stopped' Zorro.

About 1/2 way through the outing and a group of snowmobiles passed us on the trail. From working to lay fresh tracks and break trail to playing in an easy snowmobile track!!!
"Did you see the easy track they just laid in front of us!" declares happy Zorro.
"I foresee speed in my future!" states 'trail inspecting' Max.

Running in fresh snowmobile tracks is fun & easy - wheeee!
Zooming along the 'snowmobile paved trail'.

Fun day working to set the trail and then enjoying an easy snowmobile trail: 8.6 miles traveled with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 20 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 60 days on the trails covering 510.5 miles with 53600 feet of elevation climbed.
