Laying fresh tracks up a wonderful stretch of snow covered & untouched terrain!
|Fresh tracks fun. Wheeee!|
We returned to the upper elevation trails of Breckenridge Nordic Center once again this morning. There was fresh snow on the ground but not enough to open up any trails lower in elevation. Not a problem, Jack, Rudy and I had a great time laying fresh tracks up the highest elevation trail at the nordic center. The higher we got, the more fresh snow we found!
Here is a fun shot of our return on this high elevation trail as Jack & Rudy powder through about 4-5 inches of fresh powder.
The tracks to our left are our "out tracks" on this same trail.
While we found some nice powder at our highest points, most of the day was spent on 1-2 inches of fresh snow. But, with wide trails we were able to lay fresh tracks both directions.

Now come along for today's video fun. I really like this section of trail as it has a few gentle corners. It is so fun to ride behind Jack & Rudy flying along the straightaways and then tucking into a corner with them. Wheeee!

At one junction of trails, I paused to decide whether to continue forward or hang a right. Well, I stopped...
|"You stopped, we roll!!!!" demonstrates the snow rolling goofballs.|
Don't they look like the happiest guys on earth as they roll in the snow.
Back to the trailhead for our usual end of run treat party. I love how focused Jack & Rudy are on me as they await the treats. Such good boys!
|"You have our FULL attention!" declares the happy kids.|
