Nice shot of historic Sallie Barber Mine as Jack & Rudy run on by.
|Our first of 3 passes by the mine this morning.|
Sallie Barber is a really fun trail but very short by Jack & Rudy's standards. So, when skijoring by the mine, we add a bunch of side trails to fully exercise the kids. The side trails, though, are very narrow. It takes a lot of trust in your team to skijor such narrow trails through the trees!
|Notice my skis - there's not enough room to snowplow if I wanted!|
But, Jack & Rudy always tow me gently & perfectly on this narrow trail.
We ended up doing 3 laps on the narrow Trail of Tears, then another lap on the nearby V3 Trail and also did 2 laps on the main Sallie Barber Trail. The reward for taking me gently through the trees? Well, the reward is opening up the throttle on the wide main trail. Zoom!

Sallie Barber is one of the more popular cross country ski trails in Breckenridge. Jack & Rudy love entertaining the crowds by zooming on by. We get smiles, claps, cheers and gasps as we zoom on by :)
|"Hi.... bye... made you smile!" demonstrates the kids zooming on by.|
Come along for the video counterpart of zooming on by. We start alone on the trail galloping along and, then, when Jack & Rudy see an oncoming skier, they floor it to zoom on by. Fun kids!

A very fun morning doing all kinds of laps around Sallie Barber Mine!
|"We had a BLAST!" says the happy, happy kids.|
