Ahem. . . My post is getting hijacked.
Rodda - don't be that guy. I think only BSOE gets rights to hijacking without recourse.

Back to low-key backcountry.?

Corral Creek. Get off at Vail Pass, pay the f'ing fee to the little ranger-ettes and then park somewhere. Walk back across the highway on the bridge and you will see a trail sign just to the right. Skin up the trail and around the knoll and you will see all sorts of terrain that is mellow to wild. The lower/open hill is nice for beginning and it's pretty wide open. Skin up to where the trees get thicker and then let 'er rip. There is avy danger but just stay off the more northwest facing slope. The more south facing can have a sun crust on it unless there is fresh snow. She'll like it and it's not too far of a skin trip in. There are other slopes to the north that are pretty yummy too but they are more gladed and she may not like the trees.

Like it or not, all of us are the result of a sexual act.

Uhhh, ... yeah ... like he said, going into the backcountry will kill you for sure. At least don't go near MY pow! (It's REALLY dangerous back there).

Actually, like everything else in life, learn as much as you can, know what you're facing, make reasoned decisions, and have fun!
