How to pack for the Rocky Mountains

A safe bet at all times of year are comfortable jeans, layers and a fleece for cool evenings in the spring, summer and moving into fall. Spring and fall, affectionately known as mud season, can be rainy and wet so umbrellas, booties, and water resistant jackets are highly recommended. Winter can be chilly, be sure to come equipped with snow gear including but not limited to jackets, snow pants, gloves, hats, insulated boots and warm under layers, especially if you'll be out in the snow or attending outdoor events.
