An annual tradition - Skijoring the Breckenridge Ski Resort!
A truly unique & fun adventure, right guys?
|"Oh yes, we have such FUN skijoring the ski resort!" declares the ecstatic trio :)|
Anyway, the ski resort is a little too steep for 11-3/4 year old Zorro to come with for a run long enough to fully exercise the kids, Jack & Rudy. So, we started with the kids before adding Zorro in for the end. Love getting towed uphill by my young buffaloes!

start our skijor up the resort at the QuickSilver Super Chair.

|"C'mon man! Three times by the SAME structure! What did|
you expect from us goofy kids! C'mon man!" says the goofs pausing
to stop, drop & roll on the 3rd time past.
Now, come along for a view of the downhill action. But, a few things to note: I am on cross country skis (not the best for downhill slaloming!) and Jack & Rudy would prefer to go straight downhill. I slalom the best I can on XC skis but occasionally have to overcorrect far left or far right as the skis are not slalom grade. This has me telling my partners "left, left" or "right, right" a few times to get them to overcorrect with me. Unique and fun!

Realize that this is Rudy's 2nd and Jack's 3rd time ever skijoring the ski resort and the first time for both without Zorro's guidance. Given that, I'd say they did pretty good listening to my left and right overcorrections despite their desire to go straight down!
Ok, done with a few laps to exercise the kids and as you saw in the first photo above, time to add Zorro to the team for the finale fun. We picked up the fun elder and went up a bit while Nancy went back down. Eventually we turned around for the final leg of today's skijor the ski resort!
