Springtime In Colorado's Rocky Mountains
Early springtime in Colorado offers the best of winter and summer! If you love the snow, our mountains still have plenty for Skiing & Snowboarding, Snowmobiling, Snowshoeing or even some fat tire biking. Coloradans know that this time of year sunglasses, shorts, a light winter coat and sunscreen make for a perfect day on the slopes!
However, if you're ready to bask in the sun without snow, head to the San Luis Valley and Great Sand Dunes National Park where the days are sunny and the annual bird migration makes the valley magical.
It's still a little early to be dreaming about sunbathing next to a swimming pool, unless it's one of our Colorado Hot Spring Pools that speckle the state from Hot Sulphur Springs to the Crystal River Valley to Pagosa Springs and Durango. There is sure to be a destination that fits your families needs for soaking in our warm healing waters.
Hiking in Colorado is never out of season, but in the early spring you'll want to head to lower elevations like The Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs or Rifle Falls between Glenwood Springs and Grand Junction. And if it's a snowshoeing experience your looking for on a sunny day, head to Mount Evans, Rocky Mountain National Park or Grand Lake!
Once the our snow-capped peaks start melting, it'll be time for some Whitewater Rafting!
Springtime in the Rockies is never boring, and the weather can change quickly! Be sure to wear layers and bring a warm coat and gloves. Keep your camera close as there is always a chance of spotting a moose, deer, mountain goat or big horn sheep.
