Skate Mars: Learn to Snowskate Urban Style
Start the New Year by learning a new trick
January 19th, February 19th & 26th the good people from Lib Tech, GNU, & Bent Metal Trucks will be on site at Ruby Hill providing FREE Snowskate demos, as well as FREE lessons. Jan 19th is opening day at Ruby Hill.
Denver’s 1st and only urban rail park for skier’s, snowboarders and now snowskaters; Ruby Hill is located at S. Platte River Dr. and W. Florida Ave. This Urban Terrain Park features six rails of all shapes and sizes. With features designed for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders. Denver Parks & Recreation work hard to blow up to 3 feet of snow to bring a truly unique experience to the Denver metro area.
Ruby Hill collaborates with Snowboard Outreach Society (SOS). SOS was founded in 1993 as a non-profit organization. They aim to build character and self-esteem in youth through snow-sports and the SOS curriculum.
Winter Park’s legendary Terrain Park Crew sees to it that every rail and box is perfectly placed and maintained.
Lib Technologies is known as the innovator in snowskates. In 2006 they revolutionized the way people snowskate by adding the Magne-Traction side-cut giving the board extra contact points which provide a better edge hold. In 2007 they added new Banana Technology, which is a reverse camber design between the trucks. These combined technologies make the snowskate feel more like a skateboard on concrete.
GNU was the 1st company to produce bi-level snowskates which are Handcrafted in the USA near Seattle, WA.
To keep everything moving, the snowskates will be waxed with One Ball Jay wax, the largest wax factory in the USA.
Triple 8 will demo helmets and pads for protection when learning to snowskate. They provide professional and amateur athletes with the best equipment to participate and push their limits safely.
Thanks to all the sponsors for making this possible.
