Air Games

Playing "air games" on the fast terrain at Rabbit Ears Pass this morning.
White as far as the eye can see as we sprint along our favorite 'easy trail' at Rabbit Ears.

The snow was just soft enough for us to open the throttle all day in snowmobile tracks at Rabbit Ears and just hard enough to make for a fast sprint track. Too hard would be icy (and scary & dangerous for the human) whereas too soft would slow us down with sinking paws. But, the perfect level of soft & hard made for a fast and fun day!

Here we are cresting over one hight point as Zorro gives me a little glance of what he has planned.
"You still there? Good, I call for air games!" smirks cute little Zorro.

Okay then, air games it is. You first Max:
"Whee - sprinting and catching air!" demonstrates airborne Max.

"I got that beat!" states Zorro:
One of Zorro's nicknames is "z-ball" and now you see why. Look at that tight sprint ball
bouncing high in the air! Impressive.

Enough solo games, let's put it all together:
Synchronized & airborne sprinting pair and perfect terrain. What a day!

Love playing air games on fast trails!
"You are a crazy sprint ball kid!" says Max to Zorro.
"Bouncing z-ball, that's my name, that's my game!" states proud Zorro.

A short and fast run at Rabbit Ears this morning: 7.3 miles traveled with 750 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 23 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 116 days on the trails covering 985.8 miles with 107,850 feet of elevation climbed.
