Touring campus is a physically strenuous activity that includes walking long distances, often uphill. Please dress comfortably and appropriately for our changing weather.

When nonessential USAFA personnel are directed not to report to work due to weather conditions, the scheduled daily tour will be canceled. This is for the safety of both our visitors and our tours team. Check local media sources for status when there is current or projected inclement weather.
