Weather Information

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.
