On The Hill: Slide right up to the X Games boardercross course

DCIM\100GOPRO

VIDEO: The Xgames are well underway at Buttermilk Mountain, with a full slate of events today – from boardercross to slopestyle to big air, and a Snoop Dogg concert to boot! Aspen Times On The Hill producer Corby Anderson takes a run down Buttermilk alongside the boardercross course to show some pretty excellent vantage points for those who boot up.

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

ASPEN SKI COMPANY OFFICIAL REPORT: 0″ in the past 24 hours, 2″ in 48 hours and 4″ in the last 7 days. High of 34°, low of 9°.

ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: It has warmed up a bit, but it is still pretty darn cold, even with the sunny blue skies. The snow on Buttermilk is hardpack with some nice corduroy laid out top to bottom. The XGames venue is filling up, so be sure to leave plenty of time to get through security and traverse to your prime viewing location. Be sure to check out the Snoop Dogg concert tonight in person or live stream via http://www.xgames.com, where our producer Corby Anderson will be directing the fun!

LIFT LINE STATUS: Amazingly, you can ski right up to the Summit Express at Buttermilk and jump on the quad.

LISTENING TO: Snoop Dogg “Gin and Juice”
