Backcountry will also keep the menu that's made it such a popular stop in Steamboat Springs, where it got its start, as well as Fort Collins and Jackson Hole.
"It all started with Dave Pepin and Pete Boniface, the two founders, who wanted to create food that could be taken out by hikers and snowboarders, extreme travelers, if you will, so they could have a hearty meal that wouldn't weigh them down," explains Moore.
A variety of artisan cheese and meats go into "pretty unique sandwiches" with names like Fourteener, Bushwhacker and Avalanche. Backcountry also has an extensive list of salads and breakfast items
The Denver store will be open from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily, and have about fifty seats for those who want to eat in. Look for a grand opening party on April 16. In the meantime, you can reach Denver's Backcountry at 303-534-7900 -- as soon as the phone is turned on.
