On the Hill: Hilarity at the Blizzard Sale

On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, brings you a video report about a different High Country adventure every weekday.

Today's activity: Checking out the pandemonium at the annual Blizzard Sale

Conditions: Beginning Friday and continuing throughout the weekend (and possibly into next weekend, if all the inventory hasn't been sold), the annual Blizzard Sale is a destination of its own within Vail Village which excites locals and visitors alike. The sale takes place in Mountain Plaza at the base of Gondola One, transforming the building into an explosion of merchandise with sales up to 70 percent off. The atmosphere inside gets frenzied at times, and like many other activities in Vail, it's best to catch the Blizzard Sale earlier than later. Hours 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Today's weather: Isolated showers and thunderstorms before 8pm. Partly cloudy, with a low around 45. West wind 5 to 15 mph becoming south in the evening. Chance of precipitation is 20 percent. — National Weather Service
