Max & Zorro, the powder hounds, towing me through about 8 inches of heavy spring snow.
What trail breakers!
|My fun trail breakers: hopping & swimming in the morning's new snow.|
We were happy to find a pair of skiers had gone up the backside of Baldy before us. While we have no problems breaking trail on our own, it was nice to have a set trail for part of the outing to cover more terrain.

The only downside of this morning's new snow was that it was a "heavy spring snow", not fluffy powder like you find in the heart of winter. As a result, today's video clip is a deviation from our typical "20+ MPH skijoring". Come along and watch Max & Zorro breaking trail as they tow me through about 8 inches of heavy spring snow. You try running through heavy snow halfway up your legs and see if you don't slow down a bit :)
