DENVER (KDVR) — It’s starting to look like winter on top of some Colorado peaks.
Temperatures on the peak reached 38 degrees with mostly cloudy skies and light winds. Be sure to check the weather forecast before you hike this fall, Longs Peak isn’t the only snow-covered mountain.
Breck’s Five Peaks
Mother Nature showed a “sneak peak” of the fresh dusting on Breck’s Five Peaks. Vail Resorts said this is their official first snow of the season.
Snow covered another 14er Monday morning. The Pikes Peak summit had white-out conditions with the temperature just above 40 degrees.
Alpine Visitor Center – Rocky Mountain National Park
Winter weather also arrived at the Alpine Visitor Center in RMNP where Mount Chapin, Fall River Canyon, Old Fall River Road and part of Trail Ridge appear to be covered in snow.
The National Park Service published a photo from a live camera at 7:08 a.m. Monday of the snowcapped mountains.
The Boulder National Weather Service posted on social media that the snow level looked to be a little below 11,000 feet.
The road to get to the Alpine Visitor Center, Trail Ridge Road, and the Old Fall River Road were temporarily closed on Monday due to snow and ice, according to NPS.
While the beginning of September felt like summer with multiple days in the 90s, it’s starting to get cold. Longs Peak is a challenging 14er to climb even in the best conditions, according to NPS.
Tomer is forecasting additional snow accumulation on peaks above 14,000 feet for the next five afternoons. So, be sure to pack correctly for hikes and check the weather before you go.
