Ruby Hill Railyard's Fifth Season Comes to a Close

2011 On Track to be the Most Successful Season Yet

Denver, CO - Ruby Hill Rail Yard, Denver’s one-of-a-kind free urban ski and snowboard terrain park, will close for the 2011 season on Sunday, February 27.

Now in its fifth season, the 2011 Ruby Hill Rail Yard opened on January 8, 2011 for seven weeks and is on track to be the most well attended season to date. Ruby Hill’s success is largely due to the thirty-five volunteers who logged more than 900 hours to maintain the park, and to a snow cat that was provided by Winter Park Resort for maintenance purposes.

Ruby Hill Rail Yard is a result of a partnership between Winter Park Resort, Denver Parks and Recreation and Christy Sports: Winter Park provided seven rails, terrain park design and staff; Christy Sports provided over 300 free equipment rentals; and Denver Parks and Recreation provided the physical space and the youth programs that utilized the terrain park.

Thank you to the following partners for another successful season and for making Ruby Hill Rail Yard possible: Denver Parks and Recreation, Christy Sports, Johnson Controls, Denver Water, The North Face, Choose Outdoors, Wahoo’s Fish Taco and the Snowboard Outreach Society, along with the crew from Winter Park Resort.

Ruby Hill Rail Yard is located off of South Platte River Drive and West Florida Avenue. The Rail Yard will be open every day through Sunday, February 27, from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m.
