This is a naive question by most accounts. Of course it snows everywhere in CO. You have to be pretty far south to escape snow. I think the Florida panhandle can see snow on rare occasion.

Moving back very soon to coastal CA. where the weather is truly spectacular year round. Spent many years doing the extreme winter outdoors deal in CO, going hardcore by anyone's metric. Returning to surfing, 70 degree January temps, pleasant aroma of eucalyptus, citrus and every conceivable subtropical.
I feel ya, no snow! Spent many years living in Colorado's premier locals...Aspen, Boulder, Lodo, Cherry Creek, never wanted to leave. That feeling changed drastically after living on the coast with perfect weather, water, and a broader choice of outdoor activities. Did my time years ago in the military in So Cal... Death Valley Fort Irwin..no snow there.Lol.. Colorado is nice but IMO the weather isn't something I would exalt above many other milder states I have lived in.

Spectacular, perfect and other descriptors for weather that never alters much from the '70s and partly sunny is typically a personal opinion. There are some of us for whom perfect is dependent upon the season, application, and activity. Weather that never changes much actually sounds pretty boring to me. A cool morning with wisps of aspen followed by a sunny afternoon of pine is pretty nice. A mid-day walk through field of sage and chamisa can similarly bring sensory input to the nose as well as the eyes.

To each their own. Good luck in CA.

See, I'd personally rank CO as a pretty mild state.

The NE gets tons of snow in the winter and has warm humid summers
The SE has pleasant winters but hot extremely humid summers
The MW has somewhat snowy, cold, grey winters and warm humid summers
The SW has perfect winters but extremely hot summers
The NW has rainy, grey winters but perfect summers

Southern Cali is unique (same as Hawaii) where the weather is consistent.

But for CO, we have rather mild winters (snow, followed by 50-60 deg days) and dry warm summers (occasionally hot, but nothing like Phoenix). We don't have endless days of grey or cold, and even on the hot summer days, the low humidity mean mornings are awesome and evenings are perfect. Try that in FL where it's like 95% humidity at 6AM and then stays 85 deg at 8PM

Very accurate description. I guess if one is coming from LA, Colorado might seem cold, but have very mild winters compared to most of the rest of the country, particularly the NE and the Midwest, where the high humidity makes it almost impossible to enjoy outdoor activities year round, as one can do nearly every day in Colorado, with literally a handful of days being extreme.

Having lived in Illinois myself, I'd agree. I lived in Champaign, 130 miles south of Chicago and its legendary winters, and the winters there are shorter, but still very cold. Winter days with highs below zero are not rare. And Champaign's summers! "Hazy, hot, humid; highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s, 25% chance of rain" is the forecast pretty much all summer.

Actually, I wonder if the OP has already moved somewhere. This is an OLD thread!

If this was a new thread, I'd really, really be wondering about the OP...….asking if it snows in Colorado. I can only think of a one word description of that question, WEIRD!!
