The town is seeking an experienced team to complete the design and construction documents for the project, including the addition of recreational or other space.

The RFQ can be viewed at www.vailgov.com/business/bids-rfps. Teams intending to respond are required to register with Town of Vail Public Works Director Greg Hall by emailing ghall@vailgov.com to ensure they receive all materials and updates. Responses are due by 4 p.m. Dec. 19. 

Dobson Ice Arena is one of the largest multi-purpose ice facilities on Colorado’s Western Slope. The Town of Vail owns the facility; it is operated under a long-term lease by the Vail Recreation District.

The arena was originally built in 1979 and has had one addition and other remodels performed over the years. There has not been a major remodel completed of the entire arena.  

Improvements at Dobson have been identified as an important component of the town’s Civic Area Plan, which was adopted in 2019. The town is exploring options for maintaining the availability of ice off-site during the duration of the project. 

The town anticipates the remodel to be underway by the spring of 2024. The project is highly anticipated and resolves long standing issues of a facility which no longer is up to the standards expected for public facilities in Vail. 

For more information, contact Hall at ghall@vailgov.com.
