The Ruby Hill Rail Yard, Denver’s immensely popular urban terrain park, is back for another winter. You can ski or board in the heart of the city for FREE! It’s open through mid-March, as long as the weather cooperates. New rails, boxes, and features are being constructed this year and will include varying configurations for beginning, intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders.
While many folks bring their own gear, if you don’t have any and want to give it a go, beginning February 2, 2024, Denver Parks and Recreation will be providing FREE rental equipment — snowboards, boots and helmets — on Thursdays and Fridays from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Free community events will take place at the rail yard beginning with the Burton Mystery Series on February 10, the Snowskate Slamfest on February 17, and the CoreNation Tour Rail Jam on February 24. Events will include rail demos by regional riders.
The Rail Yard is open during regular park hours (5 a.m. until 11 p.m.), with lights illuminating the yard from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m.
The Ruby Hill Rail Yard was created in 2007 as a joint effort between Denver Parks & Rec and Winter Park Resort to offer a winter sport experience in an urban setting. Winter Park provides the technical experience of rail park design and Denver manages the park. More than 25 volunteers help make the rail yard possible.
