Hi all...

Visited Denver last month for a week and I am eagerly looking for a change. I have been in Texas for 2 years now, originally from Florida. I am considering moving next month and starting classes there.

I spoke to someone and they said that after October, its just always snowing and its not a good time to be there. I felt it was pretty lively when I went, but Im not sure if Denver is one of those places that just shutdown and hibernate all winter long. Or is it not even that bad?

Basically asking, is Denver a seasonal place?

Denver's got 4 seasons, and is active during all of them. Including Winter.

Rare to have serious snowfall in October, although there have been historical storms come through at the end of the month. For the most part, early season snowstorms don't last on the roads or the ground ... melt off very quickly in the sun along with the ambient ground temps. The snow typically doesn't build up until the late winter storms which have more moisture than the cold temp storms of the middle of winter.

Winters here are greatly exaggerated. It will snow for a day, or less, and by mid afternoon it can be sunny and bright. Often times it will snow and by the next day it
will look like nothing came down! When it does snow, however, traffic can become a hassel (people here suck at driving in the city), but by no means will you have to

Dont get me wrong, there is the occasional week long snow storm that stops everything, but in general our winters fluxuate between cold and mild, day to day. You just gotta be ready for any type of weather ha

No, it doesn't close down. In fact, one thing I DISLIKE about Denver is that it doesn't snow enough in winter!

Close down in Winter? Good grief, it's a major metro area of 3M people! No, it doesn't close down in winter.
