Conifer is a picturesque town nestled in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies, about 15 miles southwest of Denver. Surrounded by natural beauty, Conifer offers a peaceful small town atmosphere in a vibrant, growing community. The population of Conifer is approximately 14,000 residents. Any time of year is good to visit, from spring when the hills are carpeted with a profusion of wildflowers to autumn when the groves of aspen trees display their many shades of gold and orange. The nearby mountains and towering forests of aspen, blue spruce, pine and fir offer plenty of opportunities for wildlife viewing, camping and hiking, horseback riding and fishing. Nearby Denver has one of the largest park systems in the nation, which includes golf, tennis, swimming, several ballparks, and wintertime sledding and tubing. Be sure to visit The Midway House (or Meyer Ranch House,) which gives visitors a glimpse into Conifer's frontier past. Built in 1889, this home served as a "resting spot" for travelers on their way to the town of Fairplay. Other nearby places of interest include the Denver Zoo and Downtown Denver Aquarium, the Red Rocks Amphitheater and Denver's restored downtown historic shopping area.

Conifer Weather & Climate

Central Colorado has a more complex climate than most states in the United States. The valleys are classified as a semi-arid, continental climate, which becomes a mountain or alpine climate at higher elevations. Humid microclimates may also exist in some places. Abundant sunshine and low humidity is typical in all areas. Summers are mild to warm, and thunderstorms can cause a sudden drop in temperature. Winters are cold and snowy, especially in the higher elevations of the Rocky Mountains. Solar radiation penetrates the thin atmosphere high in the mountains, which results in very pleasant temperatures during the winter. This is why skiers are often pictured in very light clothing, even though they're surrounded by snow.
