Estes Park in the Winter
Welcome to the season of Solitude. The days grow shorter and the tall peaks get whiter. The misconception is that Estes Park is cold and snowy. During the day, we have an average temperature of 40 degrees and low in the 20’s. The sun still shines and the snowshoeing is at its best. The snow accumulation in Estes Park is light and may only last a couple of days. Avoid the madness of the ski areas and the traffic to get there. The traffic in Estes Park is minimal as well as traffic in Rocky Mountain National Park. Hit the hiking trails and have them to yourselves. Walk through the downtown shops at your leisure. Make this your quiet mountain retreat. Check out our Estes Park vacation rentals. For less than a night in a hotel in any major city, you get your own private, fully equipped mountain cabin.
But you say the wind blows! Yes, Estes Park does get high winds. There are still plenty of places that are protected for hiking or snowshoeing. The wind may also be someone’s way of saying stay in, enjoy Solitude Cabins, enjoy your family, your loved one or your friends. Let the winds blow in new laughs, smiles and unforgettable memories.
