Denver rail yard opens for winter season

The urban terrain park is free to ride for skiers and snowboarders.

DENVER — The Ruby Hill Rail Yard is officially open for the 2023 season.

Operated by Denver Parks and Recreation and Winter Park Resort, the urban terrain area is located at Ruby Hill Park.

Each winter, the terrain park opens with various features for skiers and snowboarders to ride for free.

A second and new configuration of features will be installed mid-season and — weather permitting — the rail yard will be open into March.

Ruby Hill Park is located off South Platte River Drive and West Florida Avenue.

The rail yard is open daily during regular park hours from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. The park is lit every day from dusk until 9 p.m.

The Ruby Hill Rail Yard started in 2007 as a joint effort between Denver Parks and Recreation and Winter Park Resort. Winter Park Resort provides the rails, terrain park design and staff while Denver Parks and Recreation provides the location and management.
