To stay above 80, you will want the average to be close to 90F if not over it.

I think Denver is the best bet, the average high in July is almost 90F. The winters are snowy, cold (in the morning) however during the daytime, it can get warm for that snow to melt in the middle of the winter, which is not the case for some upper-midwestern cities like Minneapolis. However a summer in Minneapolis will not be consistently above 80 (plenty of 70s).

But it won't hurt going a bit north, Casper, Wyoming gets almost as hot as Denver in the summer but with much colder and snowier winters.

I think Salt Lake City is a better match than Denver. It gets a bit hotter in the summer but is cooler in the winter (lower daytime highs) and has a more consistent snow cover. Snow doesn't normally hang around long in Denver.
