Property Stabilization Project (2011)
This project was many years in the planning and was executed in 2011. The primary objective of the project was to stabilize the foundations of all the upper buildings. It was also needed to replace an aging "railroad tie" wall that supported the roadway above the lower buildings. The project comprised a comprehensive and robust solution to secure both the upper building foundations and roadway, and involved the following steps:
removal of half of the roadway (down about 30-40 feet, to the bottom of the lower units)
drilling two rows of holes horizontally into the bedrock along the length of the complex
screwing ~40ft long bolts into the bedrock and attaching two rows of 10ft by 10ft concrete plates to the bolts and tightening them down to pull the whole of the remaining substructure of the road, and through this the foundations, into the hill.
construction of a new roadway (including installation of snowmelt and associated drainage systems)
construction of a new wall facing the lower buildings, and new stairways to the lower buildings
The overall cost of the project was of the order of $6MM, and the work was carried out by The Neenan Company (currently based in Fort Collins, CO). Historical information, including photographs were taken during construction, newsletters, and other Owner communications are provided below.

Planning Commission Approval
On Wednesday, February 6, Town of Snowmass Village Planning Commission unanimously approved the Snowmass Mountain Condominium Renovation Plan as amended. This means the plan now moves forward to the Town Council for their review and approval. Tuesday, February 19th, is scheduled for the project to be before the Town Council.
Town Council Preliminary Approval!
On Tuesday, February 19th, the Town Council granted preliminary Plan Approval to the Snowmass Mountain Condominium PUD Amendment. This was the first of two readings before Town Council. The next presentation before the Town is March 3rd, seeking final approval of the PUD. So far, this keeps the Association on track for the April 1, 2008 start date.
On Monday, March 3rd, 2008, the Snowmass Mountain Board of Directors have opted to delay the Property Shutdown until the 2009 building season. Delays in the planning and permitting process have necessitated this delay to ensure timely completion, quality, and cost control.
More detail will follow with a letter detailing the issues from your Board of Directors.
The Snowmass Village Town Council Approved the Snowmass Mountain Condominium minor P.U.D. amendment and Redevelopment project on July 14th by a supermajority. This means that the re-development project submitted by the Association can move forward and does not need any more approvals from Town Council.
The Snowmass Mountain Board of Directors will be meeting on August 15th to discuss the project and will update the Owners at the Annual Homeowners meeting scheduled for September 6th. Please plan on attending this very important meeting of the Homeowners to learn more about the redevelopment project for Snowmass Mountain Condominiums.
