On The Hill: Dropping the One Eyed Jack cliffs after 11 inches of fresh (video)

VIDEO: What’s a guy to do with this much fresh snow? In seven days, Breckenridge (and the majority of Summit County) has received nearly two feet of fresh. Z Griff takes a break from building the Bull of the Woods course (set fo Feb. 4-5 at Carter Park) to drop One Eyed Jack,

Breckenridge official report: 5″ overnight, 5″ in 24 hours, 9″ in 48 hours, 22″

Summit Daily field report: There is a lull between storms and also a lull between weekend madness called midweek…enjoy it.

Weather: High of 12 F, Low of -5 F. Partly Cloudy with 1-3 inches expected throughout the day.

Lift Lines: Not too bad as compared to the weekend but there are a lot of hungry snow riders out there. With February here, many are going to come out and not put it off any longer, while some have retired for the season.

Breakdown: This January was an incredible one for snow totals. We ripped to the very last day. Z Griff deemed One Eyed Jack hittable in mid-Jan and was waiting for the storm to jump it. Watch as he blast off one of the bigger cliffs at Breck. Falling here is a whole new level of Rocky Mountain Horror Show.
