Agriculture Grass land Region & Climate Like most places in the San Luis Valley, Del Norte is generally categorized in a semi-arid or a high-altitude desert climate. Precipitation is the main factor that determines this classification year-to-year, as it can fluctuate from as many as 10-12 inches annually in a wetter year, to 6 inches or less during a drought year. One reason precipitation varies greatly year-to-year is because the town is located in a rain shadow created by the San Juan Mountains. Because of this, precipitation is often determined by how strong and intense storm fronts are, and how these fronts move across the area. This explains why Wolf Creek Ski Area, located about 28 miles west of town, receives on average over 400 inches of snow per year, while Del Norte receives about 10 percent of that amount, about 40 inches of snow annually. Most precipitation falls in the form of rain or snow; hail and sleet are uncommon, but not unheard of. In general, one can expect in Del Norte to experience mild summers and cold winters, with spring and autumn varying between these. Springtime in the area generally includes gusty winds, and many of the year’s strongest snowstorms actually happen during this season. Summer monsoons can hit the area as well, beginning in July and continuing through the end of September. During summer monsoons, the area generally experiences sunny mornings with clouds and storms moving in during the afternoon, and varying amounts of precipitation ranging from light drizzles of rain to brief, torrential downpours. Like most of Colorado, night time temperatures can drop quickly and intensely, because of the dry climate and the lack of moisture in the air. History Del Norte was founded in 1871 as a service center for the gold mining activities going on in the area and quickly became the supply and financial center in the western San Luis Valley.  Rio Grande County was formed in 1874 with Del Norte as the county seat.  The Rio Grande National Forest surrounds the town with its natural beauty.  You can find everything from overnight backbacking trails, fishing, hunting, and rock climbing. Location Located minutes north of Del Norte and just west of the airport off of maintained county road 22A.   Del Norte boasts great restaurants, recreation and a local hospital for healthcare needs.
