On The Hill: Taking out the trash at the X Games

DCIM\100GOPRO

VIDEO: With apologies (and all very due respect!) to Mike Rowe, the ESPN Sustainability crew has by far the dirtiest job at the X Games. Sorting through tons of trash made by adrenaline junkies every day might seem a bit much for most people, but Aspen Times mountain correspondent Corby Anderson finds a bunch of people who just love to play in your trash.

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, 0″ in 48 hours and 4″ in the last 7 days. High of 44°, low of 12°.

ASPEN TIMES FIELD REPORT: Not much has changed in terms of snow conditions for a few weeks now. The mountains have a decent base, albiet hard pack. Today’s warmth should make for near-spring like conditions. At Buttermilk, the X Games courses are in excellent condition for a rad final day of events.

LIFT LINE STATUS: Actually, didn’t go skiing today. But one might surmise what traffic a Sunday of X Games weekend might bring.
