Now that you have chosen your destination, you will want to know what is the best month to truly enjoy Colorado's summer and winter, and what should you pack that is appropriate.
July is the perfect time for vacation as the summer weather is at its peak at 73 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit during the day, with averages at 50 degrees Fahrenheit in the evening. The summer activities include hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, golfing, and a true Wild West chuck wagon ride. These rides take off out of Friso, which is a neighboring town of Breckenridge. It is a one-mile ride that takes about 15 to 20 minutes to reach its destination where you will enjoy a BBQ dinner along with a wild west show. The prelude to the BBQ will include roping, cowboy golf, horseshoes, corn hole, and to keep your mouth watering for the BBQ is biscuits and honey. When you hear them ringing for dinner, you will truly feel like a cow hand coming in from a hard day's work on the ranch, and as you enjoy your dinner, you will be entertained with a wild west show. So whether you are enjoying any number of activities throughout the day, you can pack accordingly with shorts, skirts, short sleeves during the day, and in the evening pants, short sleeves or long sleeves, and a jacket.
Perhaps you are coming for the ski season, or just to enjoy the snow, but a Colorado winter will be nothing but extraordinary. There are just as many activities to enjoy during the winter as during the summer. During packing, you will want to include pants, sweaters, long sleeves, jacket, thermals, and warm boots or shoes. Colorado weather gets really cold, and better to have on layers than go cold. The different activities you can enjoy during this season are skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice skating, ice fishing, dog sledding, and the best dinner sleigh rides around. These dinner sleigh rides include a classic BBQ, and your sleigh drivers then become your servers. This ride is the same as the summer chuck wagon, but this time instead of a Wild West show, you can enjoy the western music all provided by a great crew. It is suggested to dress in layers as the tent the BBQ is located in is heated by pot belly stoves. So bring your smile and sense of adventure as you enjoy the winter seasons best dinner sleigh rides.
