On The Hill: Ski right up to an Aspen mountaintop party and wish Rad Max a happy birthday!

VIDEO: Aspen Mountain is a bit of a zoo this afternoon, with crowds flocking to the sunny slopes for a warm Saturday slide. Up top, Aspen Times’ own “Rad” Max Vadnais is celebrating his birthday in style, with a rockin’BBQ at the Buckhorn Cabin!

On the Hill is brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute.

ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: Sunny, super warm, gorgeous skies, but lots of folks out today, so use a little extra caution when nuking down Spar.

LIFT LINE STATUS: Cool, not cool! 10 minute wait at the gondola. I guess once or twice a year isn’t so bad.
