Default Moving From Seattle to Denver Metro - Adjusting to Weather Changes

My husband and I are planning a relocation from Seattle area (PNW) to either Denver or Fort Collins within the next year. Our reasons are many, but one of the chief factors is that we are in grave need of more sunshine. We've been here 30+ years and it's time for a change of scenery. I lived in Northern Colorado in my 20s and loved the climate, terrain, people, everything - but I am wondering how we will adjust now that we're older:

How have you adjusted to the CO dryness, colder winters and snow vs rain, humidity and somewhat milder temps in the Northwest?

In particular, are there any folks 60+ who have made the move from the PNW recently and, if so, do you find any difficulty with snow and ice? We both grew up with snow (Midwest), but Seattle doesn't get very much, so we're kinda out of practice.

I am happy to hear how anyone (young or old) feels about the pluses and minuses of these very different climates.

Denver will be a much better experience, more sun and snow
Seattle is too depressing
