The weather in Colorado can be very volatile and unpredictable. It changes rapidly and often without warning.
It is not uncommon for the temperatures in the mountains to fluctuate from 10-30 degrees in less than a few hours. Storms roll in quickly and high winds can come out of nowhere. Snow, rain, hail, and lightning are all things you should be prepared for.
Always check the weather in advance of your tour date so that you have the right clothing and can anticipate the conditions. We recommend checking both the Denver, Colorado forecast and the Idaho Springs, Colorado forecast. You will be visiting both locations on this tour and the weather can vary dramatically between Denver and Idaho Springs.
We will never run a tour if it is unsafe due to weather. If we do cancel your tour, you will be notified in advance and offered a full refund or the opportunity to choose a different tour date.
