On the Hill video ski report: Checking out Vail's Bwana terrain park

Brought to you by The Steadman Clinic.

Vail official report: 0 inches new snow.

Liftline status: Not a bad crowd at 8:30 a.m., but filling up quickly.

Weather: Overcast, low visibility. Go for the yellow lenses if you have them.

Breakdown: It looks like Blue Sky Basin is set to open this morning, the usual crew of first-chair Vail skiers and snowboards made a b-line for that area to get to the new terrain as soon as possible. Whether that meant skiing right onto the chair-to it or waiting in front of-Skyline Express-for the ropes to drop remained unseen, but either way, nothing was stopping the diehards from finding out. The fact that the Bwana Terrain Park, a Vail favorite every season, opened to the public yesterday went largely unnoticed with shredders so distracted by China Bowl and Teacup opening.

Snowcast: With the clouds overhead today, it looks like-the-snow's-on its way. Look for it to start falling tonight and-continue-into Tuesday.

On the Hill is shot with a GoPro HERO3 Silver Edition.
