Two skiers skinning up Baldy Mountain wanted to "thank & pet" Max & Zorro for breaking trail for others in the 8-12 inches of fresh snow this morning!
|"My pleasure!" says composed Max.|
"YOU'RE WELCOME!" declares overzealous Zorro :)
We traded mileage for snow this morning as we were breaking trail in 8-12 inches of snow for almost the entire outing. We will happily give back mileage today for snowpack to last into May! Yay!
The majority of our route was a semi-circle on Baldy. So it was breaking trail up, down and around!
|Setting the trail up Baldy Mountain. Wheeee!|
|Breaking trail as we jog by the ruins of the historic Mountain Pride Mine.|
(these are actually ruins of the homes at Mountain Pride, not the mine itself)
|Breaking trail down Baldy Mountain. This is the section of Baldy Mountain where we are usually|
flying and topping 20 MPH. Not today, though, as we got to enjoy 8-12 inches of fresh snow!
Fun day breaking trail most of the way as we added some great snowpack to keep us going until and through May! 6.2 miles traveled with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.
2015/2016 Season to Date: 97 days on the trails covering 823.3 miles with 89150 feet of elevation climbed.
