Silver-Plume is a charming small town located just minutes west of Denver on I-70 in Clear Creek County. Clear Creek also includes the mountain communities of Idaho Springs, Empire and Georgetown. Silver Plume is an Old West-mining town that conjures up images of dirt streets, bustling shops and saloons and braying mules. During its' peak, the population of Silver Plume was more than 2,000 - today approximately 200 people live here year round. Small Victorian homes and historic buildings line the streets of town, where you'll find a collection of antique shops and a tea shop, specialty stores and restaurants. The George Rowe Museum in Silver Plume was once the schoolhouse and center of the communities activities, and the Clifford Griffin Monument is a self-guided walking tour that includes a monument quarried from local granite that honors the owner of the Seven-Thirty Mine. You can also catch a ride on the Georgetown Loop Railroad at the Silver Plume Depot. Nearby attractions include the Loveland Ski Areas, Indian Springs Resort (rated one of the top ten mineral hot springs in the world) and the Mt. Evans Scenic Byway (the highest road in North America.) Horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking are available on area trails and rafting and fishing for rainbow trout is available on Clear Creek.

Silver Plume 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.
