I was up in Woodland Park, Colorado a few days before Christmas, so I took some pictures. It has been a cold winter so far, and while there isn't much snow at the lower elevations, Woodland Park is quite a bit higher than Colorado Springs and has plenty of snow.
It is a very pretty town in the winter, not so much in the summer. Strangely, there is no skiing anywhere nearby. You have to drive an hour to Copper Mountain for the nearest good powder, and the fancy resorts are a rough drive through the mountains to the north.

|You never think of dinosaurs with snow on them!|
|Everyone ignores clouds in the mountains, but they are really cool|
