Woo Angel

Rolling snow angels and singing woos at the official Rabbit Ears Pass geological marker this morning.

"Rub a dub dub!" goes snow rolling Jack.
"Woooooooo!" adds singing Rudy :)

It was a beautiful morning at Rabbit Ears Pass this morning. We had a light layer of fresh snow over packed snowmobile trails to enjoy all morning long. Apparently a lot of North America thinks winter is over as we did not encounter another soul all morning long! 

Starting off the day catching air on perfect conditions with cool snow
poofs coming off Jack & Rudy's feet.

The kids were in a real groove this morning, catching air again and again!

Whee - catching air with snow poofs again!
Oh, the ski and dog prints you see to our left are our own out tracks on
this same trail. As I said, we had the whole pass all to ourselves this morning!

How much of a groove? Well, how about topping 23 MPH in May!!! Come along for a fun speed video clip from the outing as the GPS registered us topping 23 MPH during this speed burst!

[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

Along the way, we veered off the main trail to do two "out & back" tours on side trails. Well, this meant we had two turnaround points and, yes, you guessed it - turnaround, roll around from the comedians:

"Aaahh, so refreshing to roll in the snow!" says the sillies.

When Jack & Rudy were upright, though, it was all business and all action all morning long!

Catching air yet again on the final leg of the outing.

Finally, we were even able to find a mini snow wall to climb for end of run treats. Jack & Rudy LOVE to scale these walls to get their treats :)

The happy kids patiently waiting for me to open the bag of end of run treats.
Good boys!

A beautiful day to start May: 7.2 miles traveled with 500 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 23 MPH.

2023/2024 Season to Date: 142 days on the trails covering 1209.3 miles with 119,700 feet of elevation climbed.
