As we sit, here in mid-December 2022, we haven't had too much snow to complain about out here on the Western Slope. Not yet, anyway. If you've lived in Colorado for more than a minute, you already know how fickle our weather can be, so it's entirely likely we've still monstrous amounts of snow ahead of us. We could also get nothing, so check back with me in April if you're still curious about what the snow did this winter.

I don't know about you, but if I had the choice, I'd be just about anywhere other than where it snows during the winter. Perhaps it's all the time I spent in Florida? Experiencing a winter without even the chance of snow is one of those things you immediately get used to, and almost certainly miss when it's gone. "Snowbirds" exist for a reason, ladies and gentlemen, and they might be smarter than all of us.

With that in mind, we decided to ask Montrose where they'd rather be to wait out the Colorado winter. As you might expect, especially from my previous paragraph, we got a lot of ideas for warm places to go, but we also got some ideas that weren't quite so traditional. This would include at least one listener looking to get out to where it snows even more, which just baffles me. When you love winter, you love winter, I guess.

As always, when we ask, you answer, and once again, Montrose did not disappoint. Take a look at the gallery below to see where the Montrose community would rather be for the winter. Don't forget, you can always be part of the conversation when you follow us on social media.
