Activities & tips in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region
Winter wonderland in Colorado Springs
What do you think of when you think of winter in Colorado? Everyone skiing and buried in feet of snow? That’s certainly true for parts of Colorado, after all, we have more than 20 cities over 9,000 feet in elevation. But we’ll let you in on one our best kept secrets . . . Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region has some of the most beautifully mild weather year around. (We’ve celebrated many Christmases with the sliding glass door open!) The temperature tends to fluctuate between 28 and 61 degrees fahrenheit, with very little snow till Spring. The beautiful thing about winter weather in Colorado Springs is the lack of humidity. When it’s cold here, it’s not a bone chilling cold and if you can step into a spot of sunshine, of which we get plenty, you might forget it’s winter altogether!
We have a saying here in Colorado, there’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. (Okay, we stole that saying fair and square from author Alfred Wainwright, but it’s absolutely true!) It can get chilly here during the winter months, but we also get lots of amazing respites and as long as you dress in layers, you’ll be able to enjoy the Pikes Peak region year around!
We like to think of ourselves as your personal travel agent: minus the extra cost or funny headsets. Choose from one of our pre-built itineraries for guaranteed fun.
