We found a handful of packed trails without the danger of exposed rocks atop Rabbit Ears Pass this morning. A fun outing with many wind sprints!
|"Love speed! Zoom!" whispers Max to Zorro as we uncork the skijoring engine along|
an open sprint track.
Here is a fun video clip of one of our wind sprints. You may see some scary "brownness" around us; but there was enough snow pack for us to comfortably open up the skijor throttle. Wheeee!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]
What is better than wind sprints? Maybe laying fresh tracks. Although, I think it is a tie for Max & Zorro - they love "speed tracks" as much as "fresh tracks" :)
|"Aahhh, tickling our toes in a trail of untouched snow!" declare the happy pair.|
A great day had by all:
|"Yes! We had a blast!" exclaim my happy partners looking back at our midpoint turnaround point.|
A mix of good & sketchy conditions atop Rabbit Ears; but enough good for 8.2 miles with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 19 MPH.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 11 days on the trails covering 79.9 miles with 8050 feet of elevation climbed.
