For many the holiday season isn’t complete without a chill in the air and snow on the ground. Here in Denver we historically enjoy a better chance of experiencing the proverbial white Christmas than many places in the nation.

How the Mile High City fares in experiencing a white Christmas does depend on your definition of one. If it means having actual snowfall on Christmas Day the chances aren’t that good. However if simply having snow on the ground suffices, the chances improve considerably.
