Spokane for starters. And then the Great Lakes cities: Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Detroit, Cleveland, Erie, Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse all come to mind. I would say Pittsburgh would fit the bill fairly well too. Boston possibly too, since it gets LOTS of snow in the winter. Actually the ironic thing here is that all of these cities are roughly along the Interstate 90 corridor like Seattle, except for Pittsburgh and Minneapolis and Detroit , but they are all no more than 100 miles away from Interstate 90. So basically, I would say to follow Interstates 90 and 94 east if you want cities that get similar weather to Seattle but with snow.

Boise actually gets very little snow, and what does fall usually doesn't stay long.

Except I don't see what any of those cities have in common with Seattle except for maybe Minneapolis.

The weather in Chicago, Milwaukee, and Cleveland is alot different then Seattle. for starters their summers are alot hotter and more humid. Seattle has a mariatime climate, with alot of clouds an drizzel and cool mild summers.

If you want a climate similar to Seattle but with more snow move to SE Alaska. Plenty of dark cloudy days and wet snowfall but not to much. Plus summers are mild Lol.
