Please note that our weather is quite unpredictable. Local wisdom says that "if you don't like the weather today, just wait a couple of days, it will change". In January of 2006 half of the days were sunny and 60 F. Perfect flying weather. December and February of 2006 were colder than January. We haven't had more than a couple of inches of snow in many years.

Typical Weather Conditions for This Area:

January and February are our coldest winter months. Days are typically around 40 F. Days below freezing usually occur for a week at a time, twice a year. Days are sometimes as warm as 60 F and are rarely as cold as 20 F. Nights are typically between 25 and 35 F. Nights are cooler than 20 F. only a few times each year. Snow falls only a few days each year, any time between October and May. Snow is usually only a few inches deep, and stays on the ground only about a week, two or three times a year. Occasionally we get as much as two feet of snow, perhaps once in four years. If we get as much as 6 inches of snow we might be closed for a few days. The air gets very dry here when it is cold, which helps you feel warmer.

March is our spring month. The local ski slope is melting away by the middle of March. March days are between 50 and 70 F., and nights between 30 and 60 F. Crocuses are up. Hyacinths, daffodils and tulips are coming up.
