Nice view of Breckenridge Ski Resort across the valley from our skijor on Boreas Pass this morning.

This morning was one of the rarest of outings as we found ourselves laying fresh tracks almost the entire outing on Boreas Pass. Boreas is one of the most popular cross country ski trails in Breckenridge, so being the first tracks on Boreas is one of the rarest treats. The only tracks we encountered all day was a set of snowshoe tracks for the first 3/4 mile and then reusing our own track the lower 1.5 miles (the tracks you see in the picture above are own tracks).
On the way up Boreas and after only about 3/4 of a mile and the terrain was untouched!
|Wow! Laying fresh tracks up Boreas. Untouched fresh snow as far as the eye can see - wheeee!|
We did a loop for part of the outing to keep laying fresh tracks for miles and miles. The loop: turn off Boreas and take the Bakers Tank trail until it connects back to Boreas (at Bakers Tank) and then continue on Boreas Pass Rd again.
|Coming out of the forest at Bakers Tank. Tickling our toes in the fresh snow!|
Back on popular Boreas and it was still untouched snow as far as the eye could see!
|The theme of the day: laying fresh tracks all the way!|
A rare treat to be laying fresh tracks on Boreas almost the entire outing: 9.6 miles traveled with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 20 MPH.
2015/2016 Season to Date: 80 days on the trails covering 681.5 miles with 71700 feet of elevation climbed.
