Relocating to Greenhorn Valley
Thank you for your interest in our beautiful valley, and on behalf of the Greenhorn Valley Chamber of Commerce, Welcome!
Greenhorn Valley has a humid subtropical climate, featuring over 300 days of sunshine per year. This climate type that is common in the eastern United States, but very rare in this region of the country; steppe or subtropical highland climates are more common in higher-altitude parts of this region. This isolated pocket of humid subtropical climate exists due to the orographic enhancement of precipitation levels and summers still being just hot enough to qualify for the climate type.
Despite its exceptional classification, Greenhorn Valley has much in common with other locations in its part of Colorado. Although conditions are not wet at any time of year, there is increased precipitation in March and April, as well as a snowfall maximum in March, with the snowiest periods being November and January through April. The North American Monsoon creates a second wet period in June and July. This climate features summers with hot daytime temperatures and mild to cool nights, along with chilly and somewhat snowy winters.
We welcome you to become a part of our community, enjoy the family-friendly lifestyle, the great outdoors and to be a part of a growing community and region.
