Chardon, OH - a quaint small town, great schools, and LOTS of snow (love that lake-effect!)

It might be a bit too big for your requirements now, so I would also vote for some of the nearby towns in Geauga County OH.

Flagstaff Arizona---or is that town too big?? Than there is always Marquette Michigan----peaceful community with cold snowy winters, and a gem of a place in the summer/early fall!! Maybe Lead/Deadwood South Dakota??

Ely, MN. Remote, but a pleasant, bustling little city once you get there. Lots of snow. Right at the edge of the BWCA, so when there's no snow you can canoe!

I too would suggest in small town in the NE Ohio snowbelt area! Cost of living is cheap too!

What do you want to do in the snow? Suggested locations vary based on whether you want to downhill ski, cross-country ski, snowmobile or just sit inside and watch it.

Info from right here on City-Data has 11 of the top 15 snowy locations in the snow belt areas off of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.
http://www.city-data.com/top2/c464.html

Although they list the cities, there's lots of small towns and rural areas in those areas of NY, PA and OH. In the stretch between Buffalo NY and Erie PA, there's lots of small towns and varying terrain to accommodate all kinds of winter activities, including downhill.
