Laying fresh tracks as we zoooom around a corner on the trails yesterday morning!

Back to yesterday morning's skijor. Zorro and I have a runaway truck ramp (or a runaway skijor ramp :) we love to use on the fast trails of Breckenridge Nordic Center. The nordic center has one long stretch of fast and mostly downhill trail; but this stretch ends at a hard 90 degree left turn. Now, consider that cross country skis are not designed for making 90 degree turns and they certainly cannot take such a turn when skijoring 20+ MPH. So, Zorro and I love to approach this hard left like a runaway truck and fly off the trail into deep powder to stop us (e.g., the "runaway skijor ramp") before backing up and turning left to continue.
Come along and watch as today's video has us finishing the skijor along this fast section of trail until we come upon the 90 degree turn and use the straightaway (off trail) deep powder to stop us. Just like a runaway truck :)

More fun shots from the day's fast skijor. Wouldn't this be fun:
|Dancing elks ahead?!?! We wish. But I always get a chuckle when we fly by this sign|
stating we have been on the "Elk Dance" nordic trail.
|All smiles, all fun! Wheeee!|
|"Oh yes! Fun indeed! I love being a runaway truck!" says happy, happy Zorro.|
