Nice shot of the ski runs of Breckenridge Ski Resort across the valley as we cruise along Boreas Pass.
Taking in the views as I glide behind my fun partners.
We did an "out & back" going up and then back down Boreas Pass this morning. We got 1-2 inches of new snow overnight and got out early to be first on the trail at Boreas. But, as you see in the prior photo, the trail was pretty wind blown near the trailhead. There was still a trace of new snow in the wind blown areas, so it was still a safe & peaceful glide on what would have been icy & scary slick conditions yesterday.

But, we know the Boreas trail very well and knew we'd get the treat of laying fresh tracks in the new snow whenever we got out of the windy areas as you see below:
Laying fresh tracks in an inch or so of new snow that was protected
from the wind by the walls on both sides of the trail.
We were first tracks up Boreas and then second tracks (to ourselves) coming back down. The down ride gives a good view of our first tracks up:
Gliding along in the tracks we made on the way up. Such a peaceful morning
on Boreas!
Come along and watch & relax as we glide along Boreas Pass. Zorro, Jack & Rudy really get into a groove jogging along the gentle and endless Boreas trail.

It was an "out & back" outing, so we had the usual turnaround entertainment.
"Hi, having a great time this morning!" says super happy Zorro coming back to me.
"I'm having a BLAST too!" declares super happy Rudy.
"Timber.... Dropping into a snow angel!" demonstrates goofy Jack.
Such happy sled dogs as we have smiles all around as we approach the finish to the outing. We've had better front shots, but this was the best I could get showing happy Zorro's face before he got eclipsed by big Rudy. Rudy is the youngest but the BIGGEST in our pack and can eclipse anyone on the outside of him!
Whee - all smiles as Zorro is about to get eclipsed by big dude Rudy.
Finally, look at the patient 2 year olds, Jack & Rudy, knowing Zorro get his 'end of run' treat first (and then Jack and then Rudy). Pretty impressive manners for 2 year olds :)
"My turn!" says ultra-focused Zorro.
"Waiting for me next!" adds patiently waiting Jack.
"Then me!!!" adds cute Rudy knowing to wait his turn!
We only had time for a short outing this morning; but the nice thing about short is that we get to have elder Zorro join in for the entire run: 4.8 miles traveled with 400 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 19 MPH.

2019/2020 Season to Date: 118 days on the trails covering 799.6 miles with 73,150 feet of elevation climbed.
