Zorro and Jack were very frisky and happy to be back on snow after a week off! Silly boys...
|"Shall we wrestle first?!?" suggests frisky Zorro.|
"Hey, I can hold my own you know!!!" responds frisky Jack.
Unfortunately, signs of the "end of season" are appearing quickly. Rabbit Ears Pass is one of our last sections of trails to maintain snow through Spring. But, look at the sad ground exposure in the following photo:
|Zorro and Jack smartly moving far left onto firm snow as you see exposed ground far to|
our right and soft slush between the ground and Zorro & Jack. Ugh!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]
Despite the deteriorating conditions you see in the prior photo & video, we did still find some really nice stretches of all snow! Yay!
|Zipping along a nice wide & all snow section of trail - yay!|
|"Silly, this kid is just silly!" declares happy Zorro looking back to me at one of our breaks.|
"Rub a dub dub, cooling my happy jets!" demonstrates silly Jack. Clearly 'break' has
translated to 'stop, drop and roll' in Jack's skijoring dictionary :)
|"I had a great time today!" declares happy Jack.|
"Surrounded by children, <sigh>!" smirks funny Zorro.
"Look at me!! Look at me!!!!" states focused little Rudy hoping for my attention.
The ground is certainly starting to show at Rabbit Ears; but there is still plenty of snow to go a little longer... 2.85 miles today with 350 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 16 MPH.
2017/2018 Season to Date: 52 days on the trails covering 332.1 miles with 32,050 feet of elevation climbed.
