The "first groom of the season atop Vail Pass" lead to Zorro and my first "groomie zoomie" of the season too. Wheeee!
|Zorro catching air as we fly along the freshly groomed main trail atop Vail Pass.|
It turns out we got a bit of a late start, so most of the backcountry hutters had already packed up their gear for the day and were on the trails. Not a problem, though, as that meant Zorro got to flirt with many small crowds and we skijored up, down and around Vail Pass. Here are two of Zorro's flirt encounters.
(1) Bringing smiles to a pair of hutters as we trot on by:
|"Hi... Bye...!" says little Zorro towing me by the pair as he brings smiles to their faces.|
|"Coming through... Wheeee!" says flying Z.|
Come along for a short clip of our fun skijor sprint (topping 20 MPH) along the groomed Shrine Pass Trail. Groomie Zoomie!
