[ARCHIVED] City to Conduct Repairs to HS127 Ski Jump at Howelsen Hill

The City of Steamboat Springs will begin conducting repairs to the HS127 jump at Howelsen Hill in the coming weeks.  The HS127 is the largest of the jumps at Howelsen Hill and is in need of immediate repairs to the stairs and railings on the jump.  According to a visual structural assessment of the jump done by Steamboat Engineering & Architectural Design (SEAD), the log columns of the jump do not raise any structural concerns at this time, but several other components, including the upper ramp surface, platform and decking, stairs, railings and some cross bracing components have reached the end of their service life, and need to be replaced or repaired.  The City will use the engineering company’s recommendations and guidance to conduct these repairs in order of safety priority.

The City of Steamboat Springs is committed to the safety of those using the jumps at Howelsen Hill.  The City is collaborating with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club on this project and we anticipate completing the necessary repairs to allow for use of the jump this winter.  The full project is expected to be done next summer. 

For more information, contact City Manager Gary Suiter, 970-871-8240 or gsuiter@steamboatsprings.net.
