7 GREAT SLEDDING SPOTS IN AND AROUND DENVER

1# ROBINSON PARK

Robinson Park in the Hilltop neighborhood is a community favorite spot when the snow comes down. Easy sloping hills and just a few blocks away from Locanda Del Borgo – a sweet Italian cafe that sources their ingredients locally whenever possible.

Psst… Community favorite!

2# RUBY HILL PARK

Ruby Hill Park is the place to be after a snowfall in Denver. It has a spot just for skiing and snowboarding that is separate from the sledding hills. This spot gets busy so come prepared to take turns and make sure to stay in the area for sledding because you can get ticketed for unsafe sledding.

7# KEN CARYL SLEDDING HILL

Ken Caryl Sledding Hill is THE place to go sledding. It is in the name. Locals say that parking is limited so be prepared to walk a little ways in your snow suit. The hill is north facing so the snow will stay on for a while even with all of the sunshine, and the slopes are long and gentle so the rides will be delightful.

Littleton, CO 80127 

Psst… Long Lasting Snow!
