On The Hill: Soak in the views at the top of Snowmass’ Elk Camp


VIDEO: On a mild and sunny day like today, the scene up at the top of Elk Camp on Snowmass can be almost surreal in its beauty. With expansive 360 degree views that include the Maroon Bells, Bald Mountain, Daly, Mt. Sopris and all the way downvally to Sunlight Mountain, there are few vistas more inspiring.

Aspen Times mountain correspondent Corby Anderson takes you on a warm run down the rolling slopes of Elk Camp to enjoy the views and rip some fast corduroy on a slow Tuesday.

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