This weekend marks the annual Sweet Corn backcountry ski festival. In heightened glory.
It's the time of year when a hundred some odd ski bums: come to town, share stories, party down, and celebrate the ski scene/ culture around here. It's typically stormy/ powder skiing, which held true this year as well. Benji and the band raised the bar with a remarkably good performance Friday night at the Saloon (the new trombone player turned the place inside out), Red Bull brought some type of Unimog sound system, and there was a full-on, heli rescue yesterday out in Goose Creek (props to Jan, TGR, the Cooke City SAR, and everyone else that helped those in need).
