Many people think of snow when they think about Denver, Colorado. While we do get a fair share of snow in the winter months, the flakes don't hang around for long. Since our elevation is 5,280 above sea level, the intense sunshine does a number on the snow that falls in our area.
Did you know that Denver, Colorado enjoys an average of 300 days of sunshine each year? That is a higher average than Miami Beach or San Diego.
Yesterday was another postcard day for Denver, Colorado. We reached an all time high of 67 degrees. This was the warmest February 15th on record. Today is expected to be 71 degrees. Will we set another new record?
Snow lovers don't have far to travel to enjoy winter sports. Just a few hours west, the Rocky Mountains are experiencing a banner snow year.
Currently in Vail Colorado (a favorite ski town for many) they have 51" of packed powder. That has many people heading for the hills!
If that's not quite enough snow, just head south to Crested Butte where they have 77" of packed powder. They have had a banner snowfall season.
Many people prefer to stay in town and enjoy local activities like golfing in the middle of winter. Here is a shot from my neighborhood of Saddle Rock Golf Course. There aren't many days that I see no golfers on the course.
