Yay for actively falling snow on this May 1st skijor! Yay!
|So nice up high this morning as we skijor the road connecting Dry Lake to Buffalo Pass|
with awesome views to our right.
Okay, brace yourselves.... We endured this:
|Yikes! Barely any snow as Zorro and I hug the shallow shoulder snow while Max has fallen|
onto the mud.
Need some more convincing of why we chose this route? Watch the following video highlight of us skijoring PERFECT conditions at higher elevations on May 1st! Watch closely, what else do you see in this video? Did you see it???? Yes, that is "actively falling snow" sprinkling around us. Active snow in May - Yay!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]
It is not just Max, Zorro and I who are crazy and willing to endure rough conditions down low to get to immaculate snow up high:
|"Oh yes!!!! It is incredible up here!" exclaims super happy Max.|
"But, but... you said 'time to turnaround' and I see perfect terrain to keep going!" says
shocked Zorro that I would ever suggest turning around :)
