Snow days

in colorado springs

Howdy folks!

Welcome to Colorful Colorado, where sometimes the color is white! We don’t typically get a lot of snow here in the Pikes Peak region, so it’s a special treat when we do. If snow is not your jam, don’t worry. It’ll be gone in a day or two. There’s one thing Colorado weather is most known for and that’s change! As they say, if you don’t like the weather, just wait five minutes. Which in our opinion is just one more reason to get out and enjoy the snow while you can.

If you’re looking for some fun and adventure in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region, you’ve come to the right place. We always have a pulse on the best things to do around the area, and snow days are no different. Whether you’re visiting from out of town, or looking for a place to entertain the kids on a snow day, we’ve got you covered. We’ll update this whenever the local schools have a snow day. Just check the date below to make sure we’re both on the same page.

We believe there’s no such thing as bad weather as long as you’ve got the right clothes. Right? And Colorado is especially spectacular when it’s dressed in snow. So layer up, and get out there. Check out this blog for a few expert tips and local anecdotes about dressing for winter in ColoradoThe day is waiting.



Winter in Colorado is just as likely to rock a gorgeous day in the 60’s as it is to snow. In fact, sunny mild days are far more likely than snow. We have the line on all the best stuff to do on 60 degree winter days too. In fact, we have a whole page on our site dedicated to just that thing. Check out Winter in Colorado Springs for everything that’s open over winter.


There’s so much to do here, it can be a little tricky to plan what to do when. We firmly believe you should spend as much time playing and as little traveling as possible.  That’s why we put together this Winter Itinerary to help get you started.

May all your guardian angels be snow angels!
