Boulder—Boulder County investigators are resuming their search after human remains were found inside a snow boot at Eldora Mountain Resort. Sheriff’s Office Cmdr. Mike Wagner says an employee at Eldora called police on Wednesday after finding a boot in a clearing near the base of the mountain. Wagner says detectives searched the area but didn’t find any additional remains that night. Wagner also says detectives don’t know how long the remains were in the clearing.

WOMAN SENTENCED TO A MONTH IN JAIL FOR POT BROWNIE CASE
Fort Collins—A judge has sentenced a Fort Collins woman to 30 days in jail after her 19-year-old son ate a pot brownie she had purchased and then jumped from a third-story window, suffering serious injuries. In April a jury found 39-year-old Julieane Jablonski guilty of a misdemeanor charge of providing marijuana to someone under 21. A year earlier, Jablonski’s son hurled himself from an apartment after eating a brownie she had purchased from a dispensary for his roommate. The 19-year-old roommate told police Jablonski asked him to lie about how he got the brownie, but jurors did not convict her of felony witness tampering.
SKI SEASON NOT OVER YET
Aspen—If you want to get in a few more turns before putting the skis and boards away, you’ll have a couple of choices. Both Aspen Mountain and A-Basin plan to extend the season a little while longer. This weekend, Skico will open 120 acres of terrain on Ajax. This follows a successful Memorial Day bonus weekend. In Summit County, the mountain they call the “legend” A-Basin, will reopen it’s lift June 10th through the 12th before closing for the season. Both resorts say the conditions are surprisingly good thanks to cool overnight temperatures and late spring snow.
