Here are the summer and winter highs and lows of some of the mildest places in the state that I've found. Granted, the source of the temperatures varies from NOAA to Accuweather.

Las Animas-- July 95/60, December 47/16

Campo-- July 93/66, December 47/23

Colorado National Monument-- July 92/66, December 39/23

Does the southeast corner of the state win?

I would add Delta and Grand Junction to that list.

warmer than many places in the state but Delta drops into the mid teens during the winter and down to the 50s during summer. Grand Junction is a bit warmer, but as far as the western slope goes, the warmest two places are the town of Gateway and CO National Monument.

Edit: calling Gateway a "town" might be a bit of a stretch. Looks like the population is 0

Yes. The southeast is the hottest. Lamar, Springfield, Grenada, Holly, etc. are way hotter than Grand Junction. Pueblo is usually hotter than Grand Junction but not as hot as east along the Ark Valley.

I wish there were more climate data for the 4 corners area, can't imagine it gets all that cold/snowy in the extreme southwest corner of the state.

I suppose there are times when the Grand Junction area gets hotter than the Ark Valley during the Monsoons and other times. Grand Junction is claiming to have had 100 + today and in the next two days while Pueblo is expected to have 101 over the next two days. We'll see. Time will tell.

The Durango area seemed to get a lot of snow in the late 70s. Don't know what's changed. That area seems to be the only area of Colorado now below or barely above for snow fall.

Don't know much about weather really, but I do know that May and June helped much of Colorado with regards to our typical drought.

I lived in Durango for a couple of years. Maybe it was an anomaly but snowfall in town wasn't all that bad. I can only remember one time where I was "socked in" and unable to go anywhere due to the amount of snow.

Durango sits right where the mountains meet the desert. Drive 30 miles north and you're in the heart of the San Juans. Drive 30 minutes south and you're in the high desert of New Mexico. The location made for a typical Colorado winter, and IDEAL temperatures for most of the summer. I can only remember a handful of times where the temperature crested the 90 degree mark. Couldn't ask for much better weather from mid-May through early October IMO.

I'd think the Colorado Plateau areas and the Lower Arkansas Valley.

I would say the lower Arkansas Valley and of the larger cities Pueblo. The past 4 days it has been unofficially over 100 in Pueblo and when I went home last night after 9 it was still over 90, unofficially.

No, it actually didn't hit 100 yet. Yesterday was close though at 99.
