Breaking trail and breaking the speed limit - all in a days work :)
Breaking trail in 10-12 inches of fresh powder in the upper view.
Breaking the speed limit and topping 25 MPH skijoring in the lower view.
Breaking trail and breaking the speed limit - perfect day!
This morning took us to our favorite "mixed terrain" set of trails. We skijor backcountry trails through the forest to eventually get to a fast loop of groomed terrain and the it is to the backcountry again to get from the zoom loop back to the trailhead. It has been snowing almost every day for the past week so the backcountry sections of today's outing required some serious trail breaking work.

What a Siberian Treat - break trail in a foot of powder to get rewarded with a fast zoom loop and then break trail again to close out the day. Not much can top breaking trail and breaking speed limits on the same outing. But, moose encounters would be a topper....
"Sniff, sniff - fresh MOOSE TRACKS!" declare the head dunking pair.
We failed to spot an actual moose on today's outing, just lots of fun filling our noses
with the scent of moose.
Quick pause as we transitioned out of breaking trail and onto the fast zoom loop. Everybody ready to open up the throttle?
"Yes! So ready!" exclaims happy Max.
"I already had my foot on the gas when you paused to ask such a stupid question!" declares
'why are we stopped' Zorro.

Done with the zoom loop and it is onto backcountry trails again. Fun day!
Laying fresh tracks again - wheeee!

Breaking trail to breaking speed limits to breaking trail again: 8.1 miles traveled with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 25 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 104 days on the trails covering 881.3 miles with 96000 feet of elevation climbed.
