Look who was having the BEST time out on the trails this morning!

"Oh, we are having a BLAST!!!" exclaims the super happy kids looking
back at me at one turnaround point of the outing.

The hover huskies, Jack & Rudy, were flooring today on the upper elevation trails at Breckenridge Nordic Center. The two were zipping around and catching some serious air all morning long!

It was catching air as we flew by the Kathy's Viewpoint Warming Hut:

No need to stop at a silly warming hut - let's fly on by!

It was getting some serious lift from the hover huskies at our highest elevation point of the outing:

Cool snow poofs coming off the hover huskies' feet with awesome high
elevation views.

It was floating over the trail on wide open straightaways through the otherwise dense forest:

Down amongst the thick trees and same thing from Jack & Rudy
all outing long: catching air!

Once again, the kids were getting some nice lift off the ground everywhere we went!

Hover Huskies!

As you can see from the previous photos, the trail had been groomed moments before we got out this morning. We were either first or second tracks on the trail almost all outing long. It was not until the last mile or so returning to the trailhead that we saw more tracks on the trail. Today's video highlight is laying first tracks at our highest elevation point of the outing. Come along and watch the fast & fun kids and take in the awesome views whenever the trees thin. Wheeee!

Of course, all that flying around meant the comedians needed to roll some serious snow angels to cool their jets whenever we did pause for a moment :)

Hopping off trail at a turnaround point to cool themselves in some
fresh powder. Aahhh!

Once again, who had a good time today?

"We did! We did!" states the happy kids up on a snow wall to receive
end of run treats.
