I hope this all works out great
Holy shit. My head hurts.

Agreed. Wall of text is a terrifying adversary.

The project underway here in Michigan worked with the city of Lansing parks & rec, leveraging an existing city park. They are turning it in to a sledding hill and also the terrain park. Might be something else to consider.

One of the problems with the Boulder area is that it's low elevation and most of the area has high exposure to sunlight. You're gonna be working awfully hard trying to keep snow on the ground.

Denver does the whole Ruby Hill Rail Yard deal, but there are years when it doesn't open at all. This year is one of those years. When it's routinely getting up into the 40s and 50s everyday, you're not gonna keep snow on the ground.

I'm kind of suprised nobody mentioned this, but we basically have this already, its called Echo Mountain. Still pretty close to the city, cheap, but with elevation to maintain snow.

I'm not a park rat but I would imagine you midwest railsliders would have fun at Echo.

Your idea seems cool but like L-gorge said, theres just too much sunlight and variable temperatures on the high plains. It doesn't get and stay cold here like it does further east.

The problem with Echo is that even though it's geographically closer to Denver, it's not that much quicker to get there sans traffic. You can get to Loveland quicker. Squaw Pass Road is a pain in the ass.
