On the Hill: "Beaver Creek takes their hiking seriously"

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: Scenic ride down the Centennial Express

Conditions: With the valley’s premier hiking center located right at the base of the chairlift, Beaver Creek is definitely a hiker’s paradise. That hiking center, coupled with that lift, combine to provide some amazing opportunities for hikers. Stop and pick up a pair of hiking shoes, trekking poles, get a piece of advice for where to go or join up with a group, then take the lift up 2,000 vertical feet to begin a hike the way a proper hike should be started -- with a good route in mind and the right equipment in tow.

Today's weather: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 9 a.m. Partly sunny, with a high near 67. South southwest wind 5 to 10 mph becoming west northwest in the afternoon. — National Weather Service
