Request For Proposal – Gore Valley Trail - Lionshead Realignment Feasability Analysis

  • 16 September 2019
The Town of Vail, Colorado is seeking proposals for professional services from qualified design teams for Professional Engineering Design services to complete a feasibility analysis for the relocation of a section the Gore Valley Trail in the vicinity of the Vail Resorts owned and operated Lionshead Ski Base, Eagle Bahn Gondola and Born Free Express Lift. The Gore Valley Trail is a Town of Vail managed recreational multiuse trail running from West Vail to East Vail primarily along Gore Creek, a tributary of the Eagle River. The existing trail alignment through the study area (west to east) crosses beneath the Lionshead Skier Bridge, ascends a very steep, curving slope and enters the congested Lionshead ski base area before continuing east along Gore Creek. The study section of the Gore Valley Trail is approximately 1000 feet in length. The layout of the trail realignment is complicated by the lift cables, chair and rider paths, safety netting and lift buildings for the Eagle Bahn Gondola and Born Free Express Lift.
