A renowned winter sporting event in Brattleboro has been canceled because repairs to the Harris Hill ski jump would be too expensive.
The annual ski jump has been held at the site since 1922. It draws more than 2,000 patrons to watch the competition.
The event was canceled last year, too, because it was determined that the tower at the ski jump was unsafe.
The Harris Hill Ski Jump Organizing Committee planned to raise money for repairs to the facility but decided to shelve the work when cost estimates came in.
Officials won’t say how much the estimates were for, but they’re exploring ways to raise money to rebuild the tower at Harris Hill.
