A vibrant orange and yellow sunset over the snow covered CU Boulder campus.

As the sun sets over CU Boulder’s campus, we admire the snow-covered rooftops with the Flatirons behind this beautiful sunset photographed by Gavin Crowson (MedPro'25). In January and February, Boulder saw a total of 47.4 inches of snowfall, with more in the forecast as the winter proceeds. 

During one snowstorm this January, students took part in a huge snowball fight on Farrand Field. Do you have snow-related memories on campus? We want to hear them. Email us at
