BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) — A giant wooden troll is ready to greet fans again after being moved and rebuilt in a Colorado ski town.

The Summit Daily News reports the 15-foot (4.5-meter) troll, named Isak Heartstone, reopens in Breckenridge on Tuesday.

He was reconstructed last month near an ice arena in the south end of Breckenridge. The new Trollstigen trail was created to access the site.

The troll was originally assembled beside a trail last summer for a festival, but it was dismantled in November after nearby homeowners complained about the crowds.

Danish artist Thomas Dambo rebuilt Isak, keeping the original head, heart, hands and feet but giving him a new pose.

The troll is now seated on a slope with his hand wrapped around a tree.
