Spring Break in the Rockies: Big Storms and Plenty of Sunshine

Spring Break in the Rockies

For those of you looking forward to Spring Break vacations, there’s a lot to get excited about when planning a trip to Colorado!

Spring Weather in Colorado

Spring in Colorado usually means two things: giant storms and abundant sunshine. Many folks are surprised to learn that historically, March brings more snowfall than any other month in Colorado. Here in the Rockies, spring storms tend to be measured in feet, not inches.

In between each big dump of snow, there’s rarely an overcast day. Sunshine is the norm. As the days get longer, the sun is getting stronger. So do not forget sunscreen on your spring break snowmobile rides! Sun protection for spring vacationers to Colorado is no joke. In addition to sunscreen, a good pair of goggles is essential to protect your eyes in bright, snowy conditions.

Spring Activities for your Break

Our guests enjoy awesome outdoor adventures throughout the year. Depending on the weather, we capitalize on this natural playground with everything from snowmobiling tours to backcountry skiing. Those great 50-degree slopes usually become available in May after the spring slide cycle, so be sure to keep an eye on the weather forecast and plan your trip early to be the first to tear up the new snow.

If you’re lucky, the weather will play along perfectly for a great climbing season on Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks. Some fun snow routes become available for the 14er enthusiasts, plus opportunities to glissade down. There’s a lot of adventure to look forward to over the next few months!
