A snowy and blustery day skijoring atop Buffalo Pass.
A day only a Siberian Husky could love! :)
Happy tails in the air as we find 4-6 inches of fresh snow at the top of Buffalo Pass. Yay!
The haze you see in the prior photo is not low clouds or fog, it is actively falling and blowing snow!

We expected a snowstorm last night and hoped to wake to enough fresh snow on trails close to home. Unfortunately we only got a trace of new snow on local trails; but we saw via satellite radar and snotels that Buffalo Pass did get the overnight snow reward. So, we all packed into the Jeep for the rough ride up Buff Pass. It was worth it as the snow was incredible atop the pass!

Another snowy & blustery shot as we cruise along the morning's fresh snow:
Once again, the haze is actively falling and blowing snow.
Ok, temperatures in the low 20s to high teens (F) plus actively falling snow plus a steady wind with occasional 30-40 MPH gusts. Some would think that lead to a cold day, right? Well, some would not...
"Oh man, so hot, must roll snow angels to cool off!" demonstrates silly Max.
"Really, I would never stop skijoring to do such silliness!" declares all-business Zorro.
What was that you were saying in the caption in the last photo, Zorro???
"Ok... phew, must roll to cool my jets too!" shows silly Zorro.
"Loving my snow-covered back!" states happy Max.

Only time for a short blog today as the ride to/from Buffalo Pass is a doozy. The wicked wind kept our outing to a mild one (due to the cold human - I swore my nose blew off at one point :)

5.2 miles of fun with 500 feet of elevation climbed on a snowy & blustery day atop Buffalo Pass.

2017/2018 Season to Date: 3 days on the trails covering 22.4 miles with 2400 feet of elevation climbed.
