When you’re at an altitude of over 8,000 feet, Snow Mountain Ranch weather can change dramatically during the course of a day all year long.
Summer & Fall
Summer and fall temperatures can be warm during the day and chilly at night. We recommend bringing light-weight clothes for the day and warm jackets for the evenings. Summer is known for afternoon thunderstorms, so be prepared by having a rain jacket. Also, plan your hiking accordingly by leaving early in the morning and returning before the afternoon.
Winter & Spring
Winter and spring have the potential to be cold and sunny or cold and snowy! Prepare yourself with sturdy shoes, warm clothing, and adequate tires or four-wheel drive for your vehicle.
Regardless of the season, we recommend bringing the following items for your stay at YMCA of the Rockies.
Clothing you can easily layer up or down for cool or warm days
Sunglasses and sunscreen
Sturdy shoes with good traction in case of snow
