There are over 300 days of sunshine to be enjoyed in Colorado Springs annually. At an altitude of 6,035 feet (ca. 1800 m), the climate of Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region is warm in the summer and moderate in the spring, fall and winter. Classified as an "alpine desert," the dry, clean air was once a destination to heal tuberculosis patients. Today, visitors enjoy the climate because it allows for year-round outdoor recreation.
Summers are dry with temperatures in the 80s to mid 90s (ca. 30 - 34 C), with cool nights in the 60s (ca. 15 C). Spring and fall temperatures range from the mid 50s to the low 70s (ca. 10-20 C) and winters here can be white, but normally the snow that does fall melts quickly and reveals a sunny sky again. Winter temperatures range from the low 30s to upper 40s (around the freezing point).
