The Ruby Hill Bike Park - Denver Colorado

The Ruby Hill Bike Park will be the largest municipal bike park in North America. Much to the acclaim of setting the industry standard; Valmont Bike Park in neighbouring Boulder, Alpine Bike Parks was the go to bike park contractor for the Ruby Hill project in Denver, Colorado. Alpine has their heads down stacking, packing, and moving earth into what will be an all-around engaging bike park for all users. Alpine ensures overall project fulfillment and a high quality finished product.

In the winter months Ruby Hill Park is a terrain park for skis, snowboards and sleds aplenty. Ruby Hill is the first free winter terrain park in a downtown area in the USA. So it only makes sense for the City of Denver to convert winter operations into summer action sport activities. Hence, The Ruby Hill Bike Park - the park will be dressed up with all the fixings and then some.

The Oskar Blues Reeb Ranch West - Hops & Huckers Blue Groove Invitational

The Oskar Blues Reeb Ranch West Blue Groove Invitational went down on Halloween and it was the perfect occasion to ride in all the lines out at the ranch. From far and wide invites came to shred the new course and had a great time doing it. Its always interesting seeing all levels of riders try out a new spot and its safe to say that the Hops & Huckers course caters to everyone.

The Oskar Blues Reeb Ranch West Build

The Oskar Blues Reeb Ranch West design and build was an awesome project for Alpine Bike Parks. The design process started off with a visit to the site with the ABP crew and Cam McCaul in tow. Over some Dales Pale Ales it became apparent that there was a good amount of elevation to take advantage of and visionary ideas flowed down the hill all the way to the hops in the distance.

Procuring a slopestyle-esque course that incorporated an adjacent roller line was in order, as well as completing the existing flow course that trail boss Troy Mandery maintains down to the picturesque pond that sits out in the low lands of Longmount, Colorado. A few iterations of design sketches later Alpine came up with quite a line that boosts through trees, jackknifes around a curved wall, plunges into a belter of a large left hip and straightens out for two long doubles that round out a rad track that the locals will be amped on for a long time to come. An optional seasonal lake jump is in the works, rolling in from the second to last jump's landing leading to a dock that will have all the daring folks flying.
