On the Hill: Scenic gondola ride on Vail Mountain

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: Eagle Bahn Gondola scenic ride.

Conditions: On a warm day Wednesday, Vail Mountain was abuzz with activity as the Vail Grind mountain bike race and regular Eagle's Nest activity atop the mountain were keeping things busy. Scenic rides on the gondola are $26 for adults, but hikers who go all the way to the top of the mountain enjoy a free ride back down. The Eagle Bahn Gondola runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Final ride down is one half hour after regular operations conclude.

Tomorrow's weather: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 4pm. Mostly sunny, with a high near 79. South wind 5 to 10 mph becoming light and variable in the afternoon. — National Weather Service
