Flagstaff, Arizona comes very close...just a tad warmer in summer, but it cools off at night to around 50 degrees in the summer.

uh no. While downtown Vancouver mostly sees rain you can literally drive 15 minutes and be in a winter wonderland.

You can literally drive 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver up to Grouse Mountain and be in 300 - 500 plus inches of snow.

Perhaps Albany NY, but the summers might be a bit warmer than the OP likes, on average.

Accually you can go dowhill skiing in the Blue hills which get as high as 750ish feet and drop to almost sea level. it is like 8 miles away in Quincy and Milton.

Reno-NV/Truckee-CA.

Summers may run hotter for short periods of time but not constant. Snow will vary depending on position versus mountain peak orographics and rain shadows.

Can people here STOP suggesting biased and ridiculous choices to the OP. How can you possibly suggest places like Atlanta, Flagstaff, Salt lake city,..... To the topic starter, temperature wise, Alaska and northern Maine will have your ideal climate. Northern Maine is sparsely populated and will not have the criteria that you are looking for. Alaska is perfect for you. South Central Alaska, Anchorage for example has the summer and winter of your liking, plus a major university and a proximity to skiing areas. One thing to note is that winter in Alaska will typically last longer than 6 months. In exchange, you'll get the cool summer that is perfect for outdoor recreation. If you want summer in the 70s and can tolerate cold winter, interior Alaskan cities like Fairbanks would be very suitable. Any cities in central and interior Alaska will be within close proximity to Denali national park.

Spokane WA is a good choice. But ya a place like SLC or Flagstaff do not exactly have "cool" summers.
