Winter Park Resort and Denver Parks and Recreation have partnered to turn a famous denver sledding hill into a free, open to the public rail park. Ruby Hill Rail Yard opening day (Saturday Jan. 20th) and was quite epic and alhough there were approx. 6 skiers and 85 snowboarders, we held our own and had a great session.
The park (which contains 6 boxes of varing widths and lengths) will be open from 5am until 11pm daily until all the snow melts. No one really knows how long this will be, but the base is about 3 feet of man-made and it's a north-east facing aspect so hopefully it'll last a while. The park is perfect for learning new rail tricks, and you don't have to spend hours dealing with I-70 headaches just to hike a rail.
I am a volunteer for this project and will be there every saturday raking, shoveling and sessioning. Show up and say hey. Ruby Hill is on W. Florida just west of S. Platte river drive.
