Where, if anywhere, in the United States does the temperature get as low as -10 (not all the time but maybe once every few years) but consistently gets in the low 20s and as high as 75 (not all the time but maybe once every few years) but consistently gets in the mid 60s?

So like Chicago lows with Vancouver highs.

Default Alaskan southern coast, high in the CO Rockies

Fairly high up in the Rockies might work. Here is the City Data page for Leadville, CO. Looks as if they have the temperatures you want for both summer and winter.

As for other possibilities, Juneau was a good suggestion. Probably the south-central coast of Alaska around Anchorage would be a pretty good possibility as well, though it might get the extremely cold temperatures more often than you're saying you'd consider ideal. Below is the CD page for Anchorage. The graphs on climate show average highs in the 60's in July, and winter average highs in the 20's, lows around 10 above.

Those will be some areas that will have the combination of usual summer and winter temperatures you're asking about. Other weather factors to consider, though, would be that up in the mountains and in much of Alaska the winters are substantially longer than they are in Chicago, and the Alaskan Panhandle, where Juneau is located is frequently wet and gray and snowy during the winter, sort of a more northerly version of Vancouver, WA, OR, etc.

Juneau gets cold, but not really Chicago cold. It is part of coastal Cascadia, after all... More rain and grey than cold and snow.

Anchorage seems to fit the bill perfectly though. It gets cold in the winter and not too warm in the summer.

Milwaukee, in the summer, is 10-15 degrees to warm for what I was thinking.

Anchorage and Fairbanks can even get too warm in the summer for what you are describing...I'd go with Juneau also...

Average summer highs in Anchorage are lower than they are in Vancouver. It doesn't get nearly cold enough in Juneau for what the OP is looking for, but if that's not an issue then it would work too, because its summer averages are similar to Anchorage's.
