One of the first things to decide when thinking of going on a trip to Colorado is when to visit. While we truly believe that there is no bad season on Colorado’s Front Range, depending on what activities you would like to do, there may be times that suit your fancy more than others.
Below, we will go through what every season on the front range is like so you can decide when the best time is for you to visit!
When to Visit Colorado’s Front Range
For skiing, sledding, and winter scenery: November through March. Ski season can be somewhat unpredictable, but Colorado is fortunate to get its fair share of snow each year, which gives it one of the longest ski seasons in the country. If you for sure want to hit the slopes, try to plan your trip for some time between late November and the middle of March to be safe. Many resorts will end up staying open through April but trying to come before the end of March is typically a safer bet.
For hiking, mountaineering, and general exploration: April through October. Colorado boasts ample amounts of sunshine each year, so chances are, you will get gorgeous weather if you come any time in April through October. If you plan to visit Rocky Mountain National Park to hike, climb or generally explore, coming during these months is a great way to soak up the sun and the scenery that the Front Range has to offer.
For general sightseeing and exploring the towns: Any month. There truly is not a bad time to visit the Front Range, especially if you want to do some general sightseeing that is not so weather dependent. Many of our local attractions (like the Mountain Coaster) are open year-round, so no matter when you plan your trip, you are guaranteed to have a fantastic experience!
