NEDERLAND MARKET STATISTICS
Nederland is a small town with all of the charm of a historical mining town. But charm is not to be mistaken for quaint or boring. Nederland has interesting shops, hip restaurants, and recreational opportunities that draw people from across Colorado, the United States, and the world. Residents enjoy a unique Olympic-sized seasonal outdoor ice and tennis park. If that’s not enough, Nederland sits at the base of the Eldora Mountain Ski Resort, a popular destination for local skiers and snowboarders. The city takes great pride in preserving its many parks, open spaces, and bodies of water. It’s no wonder, because Nederland is nestled right up to some of the most pristine areas of the Rocky Mountains. Headlining the beautiful parks are Rocky Mountain National Park, Arapahoe National Forest, and Golden Gate Canyon State Park.
You will be amazed with the expansive opportunities to enjoy the water and the woods near Nederland. If you feel like taking a break from the small town life, you are only 45 minutes away from the heart of Denver. Natives and tourists alike are drawn to Nederland for its recreation and some of the most eclectic events in Colorado. Over 30,000 people flock to Nederland every August for Nedfest, a three-day musical festival filled with music, food, and fun. Perhaps the most interesting event in Nederland is the annual “Frozen Dead Guy Days”, a tongue-in-cheek tribute to a deceased Nederland resident, Bredo Morstol, cryogenically frozen and preserved in a shed in the small town. Although the quirky festival may not be for everyone, it is definitely an interesting addition to your list of experiences.
When you aren’t attending one of Nederland’s many festivals, you can enjoy the snowy climate this Colorado mountain town has to offer. Nederland receives approximately 191 inches of snowfall annually, so be sure to invest in a snow blower! The beauty of Nederland is unparalleled in Colorado and is one of the reasons the University of Colorado-Boulder located its Mountain Research Station posted in Nederland.
