Report: Vail Daily reporter John LaConte mans a followcam up the Berry Picker Trail, which is one of several trails on Vail Mountain to play host to a Vail Recreation District race later this summer. Berry Picker starts and ends at the top and bottom of the Eagle Bahn Gondola, depending on which way you’re heading. It’s a very popular downhill hike but can also be hiked uphill.

Today’s forecast: Mostly sunny, with a high near 73. South southeast wind 5 to 10 mph becoming west northwest in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 25 mph. — National Weather Service
