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.

This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

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.
