On the Hill video report: Cleaning up Vail Mountain
June 19, 2013
Today’s activity: Picking up trash at the annual Vail Mountain Cleanup
Conditions: Nearly 500 people turned out to help clean up Vail Mountain on Tuesday, filling garbage bags and finding items like walkie talkies and cell phones, among other less valuable objects. Through the power for volunteers, the annual cleanup usually removes about 20 cubic yards of trash from the mountain. This year, with Gondola One in play, the cleanup accessed areas it usually doesn’t, resulting in the cleanup of trash items from years past.
Today’s weather: Sunny, with a high near 82. Breezy, with a south wind 5 to 10 mph becoming west southwest 15 to 20 mph in the afternoon. — National Weather Service
