It's a very mild dry climate. It's over 300 days of sunshine. We have more annual hours of sun than Miami or Honolulu or San Diego. So it's very sunny and dry. People think of snow and skiing, but the truth is Denver gets very little snow. The mountains are three and four thousand feet higher than the city so it's like comparing New York to the top of the highest skyscraper. What happens up in the mountains is not happening down in Denver; so our outdoor cafes are open all year round and our golf courses are played all year round. In the winter, the highs are usually in the 40s in the shade. It's extremely sunny here and there are not that many trees. So, at an outdoor cafe in the sun, it's 75 degrees and you will see people in their shorts eating lunch outdoors. Then in the evening, of course when the sun goes down, it gets cooler; it is more winter-like. In the summer, it is hot, dry, and beautiful everyday and there is often a thunder storm in the afternoon. Temperatures are in the high 80s and 90s, but it's a dry heat. It's a dry desert heat, so there is almost no humidity, so you don't have that heavy pressure feeling.
