NAACP Boulder County will close out its six-week Walk With Me series with a special performance by the Grammy Award-winning Fiske Jubilee Singers, a multi-award-winning ensemble credited with introducing and sustaining the tradition of the Negro spiritual. The group began performing in 1871, touring America and Europe singing songs that were sacred to them —- and raising money to save their school, Fisk University, from financial ruin. One hundred and fifty years later, the Fisk Jubilee Singers continue to wow audiences. Admission is free; register here.

Ruby Hill Rail Yard
Daily, 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. to 6 p.m.

See all that snow outside your window? Get out and enjoy it — in the heart of Denver! Ruby Hill has offered free skiing and snowboarding in the terrain park since 2007, but this year is the first time that free equipment has been available on Saturdays and Thursdays. The park is open daily from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Ruby Hill Rail Yard is lit from dawn to dusk. Find out more here.
