It’s spring. The freshies are waning. The urgency to race out of bed for first chair has been displaced by the urgency to get Beach parking at Colorado’s Arapahoe Basin. The day goes something like this: Unload hibachi. Unload cooler. Unload lawn chairs. Unload skis. Apply sunblock. Ski a few runs. Raid the cooler. Grill a burger. Ski a few runs. Raid the cooler. Sunbathe. Repeat as necessary.
