Boulder’s weather in January is notorious for its unpredictability and can range from snow and freezing temperatures to mild, balmy weather with temperatures near 60°F (16°C). Normally, however, the weather is sunny and rather cool (40°F or 4°C) during the month, and there is little snow. Participants should bring appropriate clothing.
