If you truly want "No Snow" you should not be looking in Colorado. I am not aware of anywhere in the state that truly gets No Snow.

You should be looking down south, maybe in AZ or NM. Colorado (and any other 4 season state) is not the place for you. Though, I think it is your loss.

They definitely get plenty of snow in New Mexico; I have spent many a white Thanksgiving in Santa Fe. I too have heard of snow in Tucson, and ice storms in Texas.

Sorry, when I wrote south, I meant way south, like closer to the Mexican border.

You may give up snow, but you will get HEAT in return.

Yes, most of New Mexico even gets snow. You probably want far West Texas like El Paso. The rest of Texas is probably more humid than you are asking for.

It is actually snow or the cold that you don't like?

I grew up for the most part in Tucson and it does snow in town, but very infrequently and doesn't stick around long in the valley and certainly not every year. However, winter in the desert is much colder than most people expect (same w/ places like Las Cruces, NM practically on the Mexican border). Its not shorts and pool weather year round.

BTW, Mt Lemon, just north of Tucson, actually has a ski area. Its the southern most ski area in the country. I learned to ski there. When it gets snow, its actually not bad, but small.

Good point. I lived in San Diego, which was pretty much a desert climate (unless you live right on the coast). It would get very hot in summer (100+ was not unusual) and in the winter I would scrape frost off my windshield, so it got below freezing. No snow though. Except for the time it snowed as close as Alpine.

There is no "perfect" climate, so what are you willing to live with? If you don't like snow and/or cold, then CO is not the place for you.

True that. The areas with some of the lowest altitude in Colorado typically get that horizontal snow. That is unless they are in a drought. But the snow melts.
