We are happy to report that most of this morning's skijor footage was "lost" due to heavy falling snow covering the GoPro camera!
A few feet from the trailhead and the camera is not yet covered in snow. We are gliding along
in about 5 inches of new snow at this point.
It was snowing and blowing all morning and the mild 5 inches at the start quickly transitioned into 12-18 inches of snow for us to break trail through. What a fun workout.
I just wiped the GoPro clear in time to capture this nice shot of Max & Zorro towing me
through 12+ inches of fresh powder. Breaking trail as we snorkel through the deep snow.
I wiped the camera clear once more at our turnaround point to capture Max & Zorro doing a synchronized "head dunk" in the deep snow :)
"What cold? Who wouldn't want to bury their head in snow?" ask my silly Siberians.

The heaving snow and extreme wind lead me to guide us to a shorter than normal outing (time-wise) and the fun, deep snow also kept us to a shorter than normal outing (distance-wise): 4.2 miles of breaking trail with 500 feet of elevation climbed.

2016/2017 Season to Date: 20 days on the trails covering 144.3 miles with14450 feet of elevation climbed.
