Much too big and crowded, not famed for its Christmas thing.
I again say, Ouray. Stay in a B&B, walk the downtown and shops. I don't even like Christmas but I love Ouray.

Boulder is not a mountain town. If snow is the priority, it could easily be missed on the particular dates of your trip there.

Steamboat Springs might also be worth checking.

If all the mountain towns are booked up (or too expensive) I'd suggest staying in Boulder and driving up to Nederland and/or Rocky Mountain National Park. Ned is maybe 20 minutes, RMNP about an hour.

If mountain towns are booked...
find one that is NOT, or a rural spot near Mtn towns, or a home stay.
At least you will be IN the mtns.

Front Range CO towns at ~5,000 ft elevation = suburbia = a commercialized / high traffic, and likely no snow @ Christmas.

Lower elevation - may or may not have snow. It melts quickly.
I'd suggest Aspen or Telluride.

Ouray is very nice but if you want to stay closer to Denver another option would be Buena Vista and/or Salida. You can soak in the hot springs at Mount Princeton resort in nearby Nathrop or Cottonwood hot springs just outside of BV.

The Colorado Rockies are pretty but the alps are amazing.

BV and Salida are the banana belt. Not much, if any snow.

We had plenty of snow last Christmas but yes, it’s hit or miss. We had a cold and blustery fall this year but the weather has been so crazy there’s no guarantee that it will continue. The mountains are so close that they could take a short drive to hike in snow if there is none on the Valley floor. Saint Elmo, Twin Lakes, etc, etc, lots of places to explore and it’s nice and quiet in the off season.
