Getting wild and having a great time skijoring Wilder Gulch at Vail Pass this morning.
|It was a warm day (for March) so you know what that means...|
"Aaaaahhhh - rolling dual snow angels to cool off!" demonstrate funny Max & Zorro.
Wilder Gulch has fast trails that takes you through a range of terrain...
(1) Wide open and fast down low in Wilder Gulch:
|Zoom, zoom, zooooom we goooo on this beautiful open trail in lower Wilder Gulch.|
Love the shot of airborne Zorro! Love the shadow of out-stretched Max!
(2) Eventually the trail narrows and takes you into a dense forest of trees:
|Look at that snow wall to our right! The snowpack is incredible in the shaded sections of trail!|
(3) After winding through the trees you are suddenly above treeline on Ptarmigan Pass with endless snow as far as the eye can see!
|All white as far as the eye can see. Perfect conditions at Ptarmigan Pass!|
A great day with perfect conditions on Wilder Gulch at Vail Pass. See for yourself in this short video clip from the outing - wheeee!
