Every year it just seems to get nicer and nicer. We started doing the yearly spring informal BBQ on Independence Pass ages ago with a small group of friends and young children. The celebration of backcountry skiing camaraderie gradually and informally (“informally” is important as we need to be clear this is not an organized or commercial event) grew till this year about 150 people showed up. First one wave in the earlier morning. After that the group dwindled and we were thinking about packing it up, then another wave arrived and the party was on again. We didn’t get out of there till around 3:00 in the afternoon, and we cooked up every burger and frank within 10 square miles. A few photos. Chime in with a comment if you were there. And thanks for showing up! Be there next year!

While most of the WildSnow backcountry skiing blog posts are best attributed to a single author, some work well as done by the group.
