Breck Nordic

All smiles as we come to the end of our skijor run for the day!
"Hi! What a fun day!" exclaims Max hamming it up for the camera.
"So much fun, still going!" declares 'never stop' Zorro.
The previous photo captures Max & Zorro's distinct personalities perfectly. We are ending our run as you can see my left leg snowplowing to a stop. Max is giving his mom a big "HI!" as we come to a stop whereas happy Zorro still sees some snow in front of us - so why stop?

Breckenridge Nordic Center closed for the season yesterday. The closure was not due to lack of snow, just lack of tourists as the ski season is winding down. We love going to nordic centers the day after closing as you get to skijor easy & groomed trails. This morning we had the extra treat of 1-3 inches of new snow atop the recently groomed trails. Light powder over groomed trails - zoom, zoom, zoom!

Here we go in a out-stretched sprint along the Breck Nordic Trails:
Zoom! Need I say more :)

A nice 'synchronized sprint tuck' as the town of Breckenridge is partially in view down to our right.
Zipping along - wheeee!

Some more of the fun as we fly one of the warming huts out on the trail system (this one is known as Kathy's Hut).
"Warming hut? What a silly concept!" declare the Siberians.

Put it all together and here is a short video clip showcasing some of our fun on the nordic trails.
