Welcome to Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort.
We will be happy to answer any question or concerns you may have please just call or send us an email.
Here is a list of some frequently asked questions
What is the weather like?
We are located in Nathrop, Colorado at an elevation 8,250 feet above sea level. We do not like to predict the weather as it seems to change quickly, but this is what we can tell you:
Colorado has over 300 days of annual sunshine, mild temperatures and record snowfalls. There’s never a bad time to come to Colorado. As the locals say, if you do not like the current weather just wait a minute and the weather will change.
Rain storms are fast moving and typically do not last very long. The humidity in this area averages about 33%. The first snow usually arrives in September (though it usually snows somewhere in the state every month, except maybe August).
No mater what the weather, the hot springs are a great place to relax and rejuvenate.
