When is the Best Time to Visit Cle Elum?
If you're looking for a cut and dry answer, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration determined that the most ideal weather in Cle Elum occurs between July 2nd and September 16th. Ideal weather is defined as:
- Average daily temperature between 55 and 75 degrees Farenheight
- Chance of rain is less than 14%
- and there is no snow on the ground.
But if you ask us, the best time to visit Cle Elum depends on WHY you're visiting.
- Affordable Vacation: March-May, October-November
- Boating, Jetskiing, Kayaking, etc: May-September
- Snowmobiling, Snowshoeing, Skiing, etc: December-March
If you are looking for the most affordable time to visit Cle Elum, the best bet is to visit between March-May and October-November. These are the times when traditional vacations rarely happen, so renting a luxury vacation home becomes extremely affordable. At Vacation Rental 365, we actually offer all guests their 3rd night FREE during these times. Additionally, during these times you really get the chance to experience the peace of the small-town life.
This isn't to say that there isn't anything to do in Cle Elum during these times. Guests can enjoy the shops in downtown Cle Elum or Roslyn, hike, or bike around Suncadia Resort. I'll tell you a secret: the weather starts warming up around mid-April, and so you can start enjoying the sun and keep to your budget! Additionally, Suncadia has events happening every weekend for guests to enjoy. Click here for the most up-to-date events.
Of course, if you are looking to enjoy the water, you want to visit Cle Elum in the summertime when it's nice and hot! But don't let be intimidated by the dates the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration set; it starts getting warm in Cle Elum as early as May. There are tons of wonderful water activities to enjoy in Cle Elum:
There are more reasons to visit during the summer than just water activities. There are tons of local events happening all the time! The Roslyn Farmer's Market begins in June and is a local favorite for fresh produce and one-of-a-kind artisans. Swiftwater Winery hosts its annual Summer Concert Series starting in July. If you're traveling with kids or pets, Dawson Park in Suncadia is a great place to enjoy a nice day outside. There's a fenced dog park and plenty of room for kids to run around and play. Also, Suncadia Resort has two championship golf courses available to the public: Prospector and Rope Rider. Vacation Rental 365 even has some homes right on the green!
Cle Elum is a wonderful place to enjoy a blanket of snow. There's plenty of snowmobiling trails and the snowshoeing/ cross-country skiing trails in Suncadia are miles long! This last year we started getting snow in December and experienced Snowmageddon 2019 in February! Guests are advised to expect snow if they book a stay between December and March.
Remember that if you plan to visit Cle Elum during the Winter to bring chains or equip your vehicle with studded tires. Coming over Snoqualmie or Stevens pass can be tricky if you are not comfortable driving in the snow. You can check the road conditions of the passes here. Once you are over the pass, snowplows maintain city roads.
Additionally, all Vacation Rental 365 driveways will be cleared before any guests arrive. We also provide snow shovels during guests' stay so we don't interrupt their stay with our snowplow. If a guest would like us to clear their driveway during their stay, please make prior arrangements by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us at (855) 698-7365. We would be happy to do this for you!
