On The Hill: Breck’s sky to sea highway from Lake Chutes to Park Lane (snow video)

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

VIDEO: After two weeks and more than a foot of fresh snow, Breck Ski Patrol opened Lake Chutes on Wednesday. That means the ultimate top-to-bottom lap, from the crest of Lake Chutes ridge to the bottom of Park Lane at the base of Peak 8.

Breckenridge official report: 0″, 0″, 0″

Summit Daily field report: The temps are unseasonably warm and there are some tremendous gusts of wind today.

Weather: High of 49 F, low of 20 F. Partly sunny and very windy with gusts as high as 60 mph. Chance of precipitation today is 70 percent and we hope it is snow and not rain.

Lift lines: Should be pretty empty today with it being midweek and so windy.

Breakdown: Might be a bit too gusty to fly your kite but there are always places to hide out from the wind. Some places could be buffed over and filled in too. Hoping this wind blows in some snow today.
