Breck Nordic

Breckenridge Nordic Center is officially open for the season and grooming the trails high up on Peak 7!

The groomed sprint track for fast, fast Jack & Rudy.

Jack & Rudy love getting out on the fast & easy groomed terrain and really flooring it. We call these trails the "groomie zoomies" because of how fast they zoom around the trails. The phrase groomie zoomie actually originated with Max & Zorro years ago. Then Zorro taught young Jack & Rudy about zooming on the groomies and now Jack & Rudy are experts at the groomie zoomie.

Flying along the groomie zoomie trail!

Come along for today's groomie zoomie video fun. You'll note there is actually a light layer of fresh snow on this stretch of groomed trail. Laying fresh tracks in small layer of fresh snow over a groomed trail - it doesn't get much better than this! Top speed in this clip? Well, 23 MPH - groomie zoomie!

We were going SO fast today, that we were running out of trails far before our planned time to meet Nancy back at the trailhead. So, I had us turnaround and repeat 3 different stretches of trail. Jack was perfectly agreeable to repeat since the alternative was to be done! Rudy had no problem with the first 2 repeats but then had an opinion about my 3 request to turnaround and repeat a section of trail. Silly kid!

"I'm fine turning around to keep going!" states happy Jack.
"WOO! Just plain WOOOO! We already did this trail!' adds wooing Rudy.

Of course, the groomie zoomies are always a good chance to catch fast running Jack & Rudy hovering over the trail:

The Hover Husky Brothers. Wheeee!

Naturally, going as fast and far as we did this morning meant the goofy kids had to roll snow angels to cool their jets at one of our turnaround points.

Stop, drop and ROLL!

Love the groomie zoomies, right guys?

"You bet! What a fun morning!" says the happy pair.

Zooming this morning: 10.4 miles traveled with 1050 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 23 MPH.

2022/2023 Season to Date: 18 days on the trails covering 137.1 miles with 11,400 feet of elevation climbed.
