When is the best time to fly to Denver?

Denver is a year-round fun city, so there is never a ‘bad’ time to visit. Summers here are pleasantly warm, but never grueling hot and the nights are always cool and refreshing. Winters are mild, which is why the cafes and shopping malls continue to offer outdoor seating throughout the year. If you are an avid skier ready to take on the slopes of Colorado, the best time to visit is from late November to the end of March. This gives the slopes enough time to develop ample snow pack, and the fresh powder builds up and begs to be tackled. If you are more the summer activity type, and you want to enjoy the river rafting, biking, and hiking of the Denver area, then May to October offers ideal temperatures and plenty of sunlight into the evening. Denver does get a surge of travelers for skiing season and summer activities. So, if you want to avoid the crowds and enjoy the city with more space and less crowds, as well as avoid the high season prices, the best time for travel would be between April and May or September to October.

Very smooth boarding, and excellent crew service. Food needs improving. Please provide eggs for breakfast. Also not enough water provided for this long flight. Crew needs to come around every 3 hours to offer water. Bigger size water bottles. Or provide a spigot to fill water bottles. Crew were always helpful and willing to provide water.

      Bring Your Sunscreen

      While visiting, do not forget to apply your sunscreen. With the higher altitude, you are exposed to much more sun in Denver than your skin might be used to.

      Prepare for Altitude Adjustments

      Denver is known as the Mile High City because it is a mile above sea level. However, if you are not used to such a high altitude, you may notice symptoms of altitude sickness on your first few days in the city.
