You’re going to LOVE our temperatures and weather! If you are accustomed to the hot, humid summers of the east and south, the wet and overcast Pacific Northwest, or even the dry and hot southwest, then Colorado weather will pleasantly surprise you. Most of our days are sunny with a very low humidity. Mornings and evenings are crisp, requiring a light jacket or sweatshirt. Yes, even in the middle of July and August! Colorado summer weather is ideal for riding and enjoying the outdoors.

“The countryside is truly breathtaking – and our lovely wooden lodge looked out onto mountains and rivers, a great place to sit and read when not getting involved in all the ranch had to offer. We came away with lots of stories, great memories and new friends. All three of the children want to book again for next year!”


Colorado weather is perfect, and we aren’t just saying that because it’s our home! Your morning will be a crisp one, making for the perfect atmosphere to sit on your porch swing and sip on your hand-delivered, hot cup of coffee. After breakfast, as you prepare for your ride, you will notice the sun beaming high and the temperature is perfect for t-shirts.

Our weather isn’t ‘humid hot’,  so the temperature will be very comfortable, and you won’t have to worry about sticking to your saddle. A quick lope on your horse will send a cool breeze through your hair and you will soon realize Colorado weather is perfect! Bringing a light jacket is a good idea as evenings cool off a bit and make soaking in the hot tub or sitting by the campfire ideal!
