Boulder in the Spring - spring snows

I've had people tell me that Boulder must have 12' of snow throughout the winter, I respond that while we do get snow (an average of 87 inches per year per Wikipedia), it rarely sticks around. Below are some images of an example - in 4 days we went from 50 degrees to 66 degrees, in between we had 13 inches of snow.

Total this April has been almost 4' of snow: Boulder Daily Camera report

April 22nd, no snow on the ground in Boulder

April 23rd, 8 inches on the ground and still falling

April 26th, a wee bit of snow left, gone the next day
If you absolutely have to be able to travel it's best to have 4x4 cars, but people ride bikes, hike, run and climb run year round.
