Catching air skijoring the spring crust atop Rabbit Ears Pass - wheeee!
Airborne Max & Zorro as we went off-trail to skijor open meadows for miles and miles!
Today's short video clip: fun skijoring the spring crust. Come along as we fly through open meadows. Note the occasional "old snowmobile" tracks that go against our direction and lead to a slightly bumpy ride. But, we'll trade a little bumpiness for endless terrain any day :)
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

Here is an impressive wide angle shot...
You must be thinking, "Wow, you'll be skijoring until July!!!!" 
Well, truth be told, the "signs of Spring (and Summer)" are starting to crop up. Water holes are starting to pop up here & there where the streams under the snowpack are beginning to run and pull the snow into them. Good news is that the "water holes" are still few and far between...
Sprinting along as you see 3 water holes in the snow where the streams beginning to run
under the snowpack have pulled the snow down.
A great morning with temperatures in the upper 20s (F) leading to endless skijoring atop the solid spring crust. What a fun time, right guys?
"Oh yes! What a FUN day!" exclaim happy Max & Zorro turning around with me when we
hit the end of one meadow where the crust softens.

What a peaceful glide we had today: 9 miles traveled with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH.

2016/2017 Season to Date: 130 days on the trails covering 1089.0 miles with 115,100 feet of elevation climbed.
