Denver opens Ruby Hill Rail Yard for skiers and snowboarders.

The Ruby Hill Rail Yard officially opened for the 2024 winter season on Friday.

Operated by Denver Parks and Recreation and Winter Park Resort, the urban terrain area is located at Ruby Hill Park off South Platte River Drive and West Florida Avenue.

During the winter season, the terrain park at Winter Park Resort offers a range of features for skiers and snowboarders to enjoy without any cost. As long as the weather allows, the rail yard will remain open until March.

Winter Park Resort collaborated with the city to create the rail yard, with the resort providing snow guns, staff, and technical assistance for snowmaking. Volunteers and Denver parks employees also contributed to the construction of the rail yard. Thanks to the recent cold weather, snowmaking has been possible, enabling the development of the rail yard. This year, the rail yard is being upgraded with new rails, boxes, and features. These additions will cater to different skill levels, from beginners to advanced riders, as stated by the city.

You can visit the rail yard daily during regular park hours, from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Additionally, the park is illuminated every day from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Starting from Friday, February 2, Denver Parks and Recreation will offer free rental equipment, including snowboards, boots, and helmets. This service will be available on Thursdays and Fridays from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., as well as on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
