On the Hill: Checking out Chair 4 upgrade 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: Checking out the upgrade to Chair 4 at Mid-Vail.

Conditions: This is the first summer in years we've been able to take scenic lift rides from Vail Village to Mid Vail, and with construction currently underway to upgrade Chair 4 from a quad to a 6-seater, there's plenty to see via a trip up Gondola One. While it feels like we've been in summer mode for a while now, the full scope of activity on Vail Mountain has only been available for about a week as trails on the backside just opened July 1.

Tuesday's weather: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1pm. Mostly sunny, with a high near 78. South wind 5 to 15 mph becoming west northwest in the afternoon. — National Weather Service
