Winter in Westcliffe
Be as active as you want to be—seek adventure or get cozy.
Westcliffe is known for our panoramic mountain views. So, you can imagine how majestic it looks with a dusting of snow over our jagged peaks. Take a stroll through our quaint downtown on a sunny winter day, and you might feel like you’ve been dropped into the scene of a Hallmark Christmas movie.
Not only is the backdrop ideal, so is the weather. Many newcomers are surprised to find winters in Westcliffe to be quite mild with our semi-arid, low-humidity climate.
While snow falls on the valley floor, it usually doesn’t last long.
And yet, you can head up a mountain trail in minutes to play in the snow.
Colorado is, of course, known for skiing. And while Westcliffe isn’t a ski town, for those who enjoy the sport, it’s really the best of both worlds…
Easy access to world-class skiing and jaw-dropping mountain scenery–without the ski town prices (and crazy crowds!)
