Breakfast burritos part of Vail Mountain cleanup day, held on Monday, June 4

Daily staff report

VAIL — The U.S. Forest Service and Vail Mountain invite community volunteers to join employees for the annual mountain cleanup, scheduled for Monday, June 4. Volunteers will be provided breakfast burritos at Mid-Vail, compliments of Vail Resorts, before the cleanup begins.

On cleanup day, volunteers should meet at the base of the Gondola One in Vail Village by 9 a.m. with their own work gloves, water, sun block, hat, snacks, sturdy hiking shoes and clothing for inclement weather.

Volunteers will be transported up the mountain at 9 a.m. via Gondola One, provided with trash bags and then will head to clean up various areas of the mountain from Mid-Vail by walking and limited shuttles. Volunteers should be able to hike for several hours and descend and ascend uneven terrain. In the event of severe weather, a decision will be made the morning of the cleanup to either continue with the event or postpone.

All volunteers will need to complete and sign a liability release form in order to participate. Liability release forms are required and will be available upon arrival at Gondola One.
