Winter in the Foothills
Colorado is one of the sunniest places in America. Even during the coldest months of the year, it’s a rare day in which the sun never comes out. The heavier snowfall usually starts in December, so an early morning frost in November could melt away by mid-afternoon.

For skiing and other snowy adventures, winter and early spring are the best times to visit. Since Broomfield is at the foot of the mountains, the weather is milder, so hiking here is great any time of the year.
