Coalmont Weather

 

Coalmont is located in the Tulameen River Valley, at an altitude of 744 metres (2440 ft). The Mountains on both sides of the River reach over 1400 m (4600 ft) within just 4 km. of town, so the weather can change quickly. Don't venture into the high country unless you are properly equipped.

Like the sign says, the weather in Coalmont is hot, cold, wet or dry at various times! The chart above will give you an idea of what the average High and Mean temperatures are at various times of the year. The Record High is 41.7 C (107 F) and the Record Low is -42.8 C (-45 F). It cools off at night in the Summer, and a nice breeze flows down the valley from the mountains towards Princeton most Summer afternoons, both of which help to keep the Summer heat in check. Our air-conditioned rooms give you a place to hide when you feel the need.

When you want to warm up, you won't need to fight with a cantankerous wood stove in our cozy rooms.
