Boulder, Colorado needs no introduction, a picturesque haven for outdoor & tech enthusiasts. Winter in Boulder takes on an entirely different groove, as gorgeous snowy scenes dominate the landscape.

Boulder is the quintessential adventure town, nestled up against the foothills of the mighty Rocky Mountains & alive with a vibrant & active outdoor community. Summer here is truly wonderful, with lush green mountainsides, rushing snow-melt creeks & dense forests blanketing the rugged landscape.

Yet winter in Boulder is equally epic, with the snow dusted Flatirons forming a picturesque backdrop to any outdoor activity, you don't have to wander far to seek breathtaking beauty & snowscapes.

One of the best locations to explore in winter in Boulder is the aptly popular Chautauqua Park, Summer here is abuzz with hikers, but winter is definitely more subdued & if you find yourself on one of the many trails during a snow storm, or early morning there's a good chance you'll have the place to yourself.

Seeking that minds-eye scene of the iconic Flatirons blanketed with snow? It can be a little elusive, during a storm they can be masked by low lying cloud - still wonderfully beautiful to photograph, but - as always - a little persistence will usually pay off. 

Beauty of Boulder in Winter

Even the Boulder staple hike, Mt Sanitas, and the Sanitas Valley take on a subdued presence when blanketed with snow. Bearing in mind this is a particularly steep hike, and traction for your boots is absolutely required when attempting in winter.
