Spring

 

Spring Ponds

Spring Runoff

Spring brings mild temperatures, fluffy white snows and showers to feed the wildflowers. Runoff fills the rivers, bull elk and buck deer drop their antlers, spotted fawns and calves are hidden in the new green foliage and bighorn sheep graze right along the roadsides. Renewal time!

Spring vacationers in March enjoy downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, horseback riding, hiking. It's a beautiful time of the year — our biggest snows and mild winter temperatures make outdoor advertures particularly invigorating.

The Town Community Development Department publishes these averages from the Colorado Climate Center. Temperatures are in Farenheight, precipitation in inches. What the averages don't reveal is the variance.

High variance is the only constant about our weather. There is not a single month of the year which is historically snow-free. On the other hand, there is not a single month in which we do not have picnic lunches outdoors in the warm sun.

What to wear at this time of year? Layers, layers, layers. March and April are our biggest snow months. Not the cold winter snows but the big, wet spring snow. Sunny days, you could be in shirt sleeves, sweatshirt or jacket. Snow boots could come in handy, especially in March and April. A warm coat will be good for evenings. Rain gear or a simple poncho will help you enjoy afternoon showers in May and June.

Cuddle up for a quiet fireside getaway. Venture forth to find the first mountain wildflowers. Watch for elk calves, deer fawn and bighorn lambs that are born in the spring. Browse the shops in town.
