Vail council debates Lionshead vs. LionsHead
Vail, CO Colorado
Who was present: Council members Kevin Foley, Susie Tjossem, Ludwig Kurz, Margaret Rogers, Greg Moffet, Kerry Donovan and Mayor Andy Daly.
The issue: Whether new town wayfinding signs should spell Lionshead as one word with a lowercase “h” or as one word with an uppercase “H.”
What they talked about: As the town prepares to invest in new signs throughout town, the town asked various community members for input over the last week on the issue of Lionshead vs. LionsHead. Some history suggests the capital “H” was in use early on, but businesses have used both versions for years, Zemler said.
The town referenced a vintage Vail photo showing use of the capital H, which was also the same format recommended at the town wayfinding update prior to the 1999 World Alpine Ski Championships. Signs on the Frontage Road currently show a capital H, while businesses have retained the lowercase h.
Council members unanimously decided that the general thinking has been a lowercase “h,” and therefore the town should keep that spelling.
“I think it’s kind of artificial to have a capital H,” Rogers said.
