On The Hill: The Keystone donut effect (video)

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

VIDEO: What’s the donut effect? It’s when a winter storm sits in a single area for at least 24 hour, bringing with it powder galore. It’s also what happened to Keystone early this week. Z Griff heads out to make the most of the phenomenon.

Keystone official report: 9″

Summit Daily field report: The wind blew last night and snow fell across the county: 4″ at Vail and Copper, 7″ at Breck, 9″ at Keystone and A-Basin, and 10.5″ at Loveland.

Weather: 23 degrees this morning.

Lift lines: Should not be too bad today with more and more runs/mountains open. I’m heading to Vail tomorrow for opening day on the other side of the pass — they’ve been getting pounded.
