The weather was ideal and the avalanche stability had improved, dropping to between moderate and low. It was a perfect weekend to join our friends at their cabin up in the Ragged’s above Marble.
Every time we visit here it’s a great time. There’s just so much terrain to see and ski, some of which is just too inaccessible without the sort of advanced base camp that a remote cabin like this provides.
And this time was no exception, we were able to get into a very hard to reach valley that we had never been to before. It was really cool.
Sometimes the snow and the skiing isn’t what’s most important in a day, the location and the group you’re with can be what makes an outing memorable. And when you can get a day like we experienced this past weekend you might only realize in hindsight that it was the highlight of the season.
