Absolutely perfect conditions to skijor Walton Peak at Rabbit Ears Pass this morning.
Is it really May? :)
Zorro and Jack catching air as you see a perfect spring crusts as far as the eye can see!
We knew there was enough snow to skijor Walton Peak this morning; but we were beyond ecstatic to find a hard crust to skijor any path we chose! With temperatures rising every afternoon, you never know whether the snow will re-harden over night or if you'll find punchy or slushy conditions. Well, today was PERFECT as the temps cooled enough last night to make a solid spring crust to support our weight all morning long. Fun...

But, it is spring, so temperatures rise every day. You know what that means Jack will do during any break, right? Snow angels...
"This little bro is goofy!" says happy Zorro at one of our two breaks.
"Aw man, must roll and cool my jets!" declares silly Jack.
On to today's video highlight. Come along as we make our own path to sprint & glide all over Walton Peak at the top of Rabbit Ears Pass. What a perfect spring crust!

We continue to take 2 breaks every outing as we are training and growing young Jack. Second break, same as the first...
"Goofy I tell you, this kid is goofy!" states happy Zorro.
"Hehe, haha, hoho!" adds silly Jack as he is just finishing rolling another snow angel.
End of the day's run and time to try and get a puppy shot with little Rudy. Unfortunately, Rudy kept aligning himself in between Zorro and Jack and was not visible during most of our "end of run" treats. But, here is one shot where you can at least see him :)
Focused, just focused! Three sled dogs very focused on their end of run treats.

A great day with a perfect spring crust all outing long: 3.1 miles traveled with 400 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 19 MPH.

2017/2018 Season to Date: 51 days on the trails covering 329.3 miles with 31,700 feet of elevation climbed.
