You can still backcountry ski in the Marble area (Colorado, USA), and now you can quaff Stella paired with fine and reasonably priced victuals after your corn ski. Hours will be 7×7 for the summer, 11:00-9:00. Due to a refreshing layer of new snow we figure the spring skiing conditions might be good for a few more days, before our dread dust layer comes to the surface.
Lisa had the tasty 'caveman toothpicks' consisting of high quality sirloin with secret sauce, slow grooved to perfection. I'll testify.
