A fast day of the "groomie zoomies" at Rabbit Ears Pass.
What a fun day!

"We cannot pick a favorite section of the outing this morning - it was all GREAT!" declare the
ecstatic pair looking back at me at a turnaround point.

The main snowmobile trails typically get groomed the morning after a previous night's snowfall. If you get out early, you can often be the first or second tracks on perfectly groomed and lightning fast terrain. Today was one such morning. The pictures (and video) tell it much better than I can say...

(1) Catching air on our favorite "wide open" section of groomie zoomie:
Zoom, Boom, Wow - what else to say?
Love the snow dust behind Max & Zorro as they are kicking it up on the freshly groomed terrain.

(2) Connecting... Occasionally we took our own path to connect sections of the groomie zoomies. We were laying fresh tracks on all the connector routes.
Trot, trot, trot we go laying fresh tracks with fresh snow as far as the eye can see (the next
section of groomie zoomie is straight ahead where we meet the trees)!

(3) The first groomie zoomie shot above was on wide open terrain. This next section of groomie zoomie is a wild ride winding through the forest. Wheeee!
Zoom, Boom and Wow again... Look at that wall of snowpack to Max's right. Incredible for April!

Today's video highlight is a compilation. I could not decide what was more fun the "wide open" groomie zoomie or the "zoomie through the forest", so I spliced excerpts from both together into one. Here we goooo - zoooom!

What a fast & fun day on freshly groomed perfect terrain. We only had a short amount of time for the outing, so we pumped out 7.8 miles in record time: 7.8 miles traveled with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 25 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 111 days on the trails covering 941.4 miles with 103300 feet of elevation climbed.
