HI. your spider is a jumping spider in the Salicidae family, sure looks like a twin flagged jumping spider, Anasaitis canosa. I used to mistake these for Phidippus audax until I discovered them.
Cool spiders, rather people friendly.

Yours looks like male, awful hard finding a match to patterns.

I agree with Bold Jumper, Phidippus audax. Looks like this one also from CO IDed as a Bryantae variation of P. audax:
