OMG.  How many times does it have to be stated...

IT DOES NOT SNOW THAT MUCH IN DENVER.

Go west into the mountains?  Yeah, your snow concerns are valid.

Climate of Denver

The climate of Denver, although frequently unpredictable and rather misunderstood by most, is really rather pleasant. Denver, lying on the east side of the mountains and located on the plains of the state, experiences the benefit of a weather barrier, a winter snow shield that we call the Rocky Mountains. Occasionally a major snow storm will impact the area and leave a significant amount of snow upon metro residents, yet the winters and summers remain mostly dry, averaging 8-15 inches of precipitation a year. Ranging from an average of 69 degrees in the summer to a standard 45-degree day in the winter, the city and suburbs stay mild and arid year-round. Also, Colorado State displays over 300 days of sunshine per year, more annual golden sunbeams than even San Diego California!
