My supervisor runs the Ruby Hill program for Winter Park/City of Denver. Just not enough snow last season. Season before - woah! That was tough scrubbing all that grass off the boards used during opening day. It is a limited season but they try to run it as long as they can. Unless you hear otherwise, it's going to happen. Too good of PR for Winter Park to pass on. Winter Park is also owned by the City and County of Denver.

Was pretty sure that the City of Denver doesn't own WP anymore?

The city still owns it. Intrawest runs it for the city of Denver.

I'd check into it. There's got to be a few perks left. If not, passes are pretty cheap compared to the rest of the USA. You can always volunteer up there and earn free tickets and passes through various programs. You can even earn tickets in the summer that are good for the winter season.

Ah ya, that's not an option as far as working thru the winter. I may already have to do snow removal which is gonna eat into my riding time. ( =

I used to go sledding there! Never been to the rail yard, but my god I hope we get pounded this year. This has been the wettest and coolest Summer I remember in a long time, so here's hoping.

I second that. If this summer is any kind of sign of things to come this winter is going to kick fucking ass

Ok.. It's time to BUMP this. Who know's something, anything? Last I heard they were trying to open just after xmas. Searched the google and found this...

Why won't you open, Ruby Hill Rail Yard? Why?! - Denver News - On the Edge

Which seems to say January... It's been cold enough lately they could have started. Might have to go drive by during lunch and see the haps!

The other problem Denver has is that it's so darn flat that hardly anything is shaded. The sun just zaps the snow and it's gone. Up in the foothills you could easily pull it off on a north facing slope. Heck, my neighbors across the creek have to deal with snow cover from late October through mid-June. Where as my south facing side only has intermittent snow cover even in the winter in the non-shaded places. There is a huge temperature difference even though they're only about 100 yards away.
