On the Hill: Checking out the chondola construction in Beaver Creek

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: Bike ride up to Beaver Creek to check out construction on Centennial Express (Chair 6) and the new chondola that will be replacing it. Also, take a look at some of the summer activities going on at Beaver Creek now.

Conditions: Centennial Express is well underway with construction of the new chondola - a first-of-its-kind six-person lift/gondola. Summer activities have begun at the base of Centennial, with more set to open June 14. The Strawberry Park lift will open for summer fun after the elk migration (around the beginning of July).

Today's weather: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1pm. Mostly sunny, with a high near 60. Breezy, with a south southwest wind 5 to 10 mph becoming west 15 to 20 mph in the afternoon. — National Weather Service
