Depends on what you consider winter. If probability of snow is your only barometer then it's mid-October to late-April. Truthfully, compared to the Upper Midwest and the Northeast winter in Denver is pretty mild. Albuquerque & Flagstaff would be milder.

Anywhere in southern New England. Serious snow ( multiple inches at once) seldom starts before the end of December and ends by the end of March most years. March starts to see upper 40- 50 degree days so any snow does not stay long. April brings forsythia, daffodils and tulips.

Prescott, AZ sounds like a good fit for you. Dont do Denver unless you like snowfalls that range into late April and can start as early as October. Flagstaff is also a lot colder than people think. Nighttime lows down to 0 degrees are common, and the city averages over 100" of snow annually. It usually melts off within a few days, but theres a lot of ice to deal with.

A lot of cities suggested here have warm-to-hot summers though...wonder if the OP can put up with that.

Not if the OP is looking for cool summers. People underestimate how humid our summers can be here.
