The snow was a welcome sight for many in the Denver metro area who are used to a little more snow by this time.

“A successful run consists of not too much power at the top, getting a gentle start, and then steering with your hands on both sides trying to keep it straight,” said another sledder.

The Ruby Hill sledding area is near the Ruby Hill Rail Yard, which is a ski and snowboard terrain park for beginners.
