Add another vote for Salida, or even closer to Littleton, Buena Vista (God forgive them for their pronunciation of the town's name-sacrilege).

To avoid the coldest non-mountain-top places in CO, don’t move to North Park, Middle Park, or South Park towns.

OP appears to be surfing based on maps and perceived driving time from large cities alone. South Fork, Oak Creek, Alamosa. What next?

Draw a lumpy, lopsided circle (using drive time radii) around the kids’ location in Littleton, study climate and microclimate for anything being considered, factor in mountain road conditions for driving time—not just miles, and consider what things you could not tolerate (high forest fire risk, extreme heat or cold, long drives just to buy groceries or basic services, high wind, etc etc).
