Updated: Mar 3, 2022
Visiting Colorado is truly great no matter the time of year that you come—and we are not just saying that because we love this place! Summer brings comfortable weather and plenty of hiking, the colors can’t be beat in the fall, winter has incredible skiing and cold-weather activities, and spring is really the best of all of it!
If you are planning a trip to Colorado with your family this spring, we bet you are excited—and we can’t wait to have you. Below, we have a helpful guide so you know what to expect and can make the most of your time here. Safe travels, and we hope you come see us!
What to Expect From Colorado in the Spring When Traveling
There may still be some snow. If you are hoping to get some spring skiing weather while you are visiting Colorado, you might be in luck! Arapahoe Basin boasts the longest ski season in Colorado most years, sometimes staying open until the middle of June. Even if skiing is not your thing, if you are planning on mountain hikes, be prepared that some places may still have snow on the ground.
There will likely be plenty of wildflowers. Between our untouched acres of nature, an ample layer of winter snow and high elevations, the wildflowers in Colorado sure do show off in the spring. Hikes are a great way to go wildflower watching—while you can’t pick them, you can take photos and see how many different varieties your family can spot on each outing!
The horses will be ready to go. Because we are closed for the winter, our horses get to focus on staying warm and cozy when temperatures drop—which means that when things start to warm up, they can’t wait to get back to work. For this reason, we are a top destination for the spring season in Estes Park, so be sure to come see us!
The weather will be lovely. Colorado gets ample amounts of sunshine every year, so while there are some April showers, the odds of you having great, sunny weather while you are here are quite high! Spring is a lovely season, not too hot and not too cold, so you are sure to have a blast while enjoying the outdoors to your heart’s content.
Don’t miss out on your chance to see the Front Range on horseback! Book a ride with us today for your family’s trip.
