What is the weather like in Colorado in September?

Although September is one of the most comfortable months in the year, weather in Colorado is somewhat unpredictable. It could be sunny in the morning and/or rainy and cool by the afternoon. The average temperature in September ranges from 65F – 75F (17C – 22C) during the day and we anticipate the weather will not be an issue. In fact, it may be hot! You will be wise however, to be prepared with layers of clothing. It can be considerably cooler in the mountains. Check weather forecasts ahead of time.

Should I be concerned about the higher altitude?

The key is to simply remember that you are at a higher altitude. Drink plenty of water, use sunscreen and lip balm. Do not drink alcohol or engage in extreme exercise for the first 24 hours. Rest as needed! Be aware of your body especially while in the mountains. Most altitude issues resolve within 24 hours.

When should I arrive?

If you are a general conference attendee please plan to arrive by 9:30 am on Friday September 1st.
