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.
