COVID In Denver: Ruby Hill Rail Yard Will Be Closed This Winter

DENVER (CBS4) - There will be no shredding at Ruby Hill Rail Yard in Denver this winter. Officials say the risk of the spread of COVID-19 is too great for them to allow the hill to be open for snowboarders and skiers.

The urban rail yard that's within city limits offers 10 rails and boxes. It typically opens between January and February.
