at the moment... Colorado has a 'high cost of admission (housing)' this will change, but likely never be cheap.

NM, AZ, NV has more options.
Las Cruces, NM is a 'warmer' area with a good university and very engaging community (US National Labs and military research), mtns nearby (no skiing !) ABQ is warmer than most of CO,
Prescott Valley, AZ is quite nice and similar terrain to CO, but warmer.
Carson City, NV is very near mtns, nice college, income tax free.

Other very good choices for college towns near Mtns, but warmer than CO.
La Grande, OR
Walla Walla, WA (income tax free)
Wenatchee / Ellensburg, WA
Moscow, ID
Sandpoint or Courd alene, ID(community colleges and University Extensions.

Do you have family in Colorado? What is the reason for CO.
Grand Junction has an airport with scheduled flights... GJT

So does Montrose (MTJ), and both have lots of sunny days and little snow. GJT is a little warmer than MTJ because its elevation is lower. Both are quite affordable.

Colorado Springs has UCCS and Colorado College. I never shoveled last winter , we had hardly any snow , I'm not sure if this was normal. We received 7.5 inches of rain here in the northeast part of town last month , its green right now. You can find a nice home for under 300k easily. Also, we have Colorado Springs municipal airport and the views of pikes peak are fabulous.
