Oh yeah, having a major snowstorm once every few years that shuts the area down for a day or two is a really big deal, makes for a hard winter all the time.

Sometimes the winter days in the Denver metro area can be very nice......almost like saying "is it still winter here??". But, then again other days can get very, very, very WHITE outside (and COLD). For snow skiers and kids who love to play in this "white stuff", it is great. But, for some of us older folks in our 60's/70's all we can say is "you can have it, we're leaving".

Go ahead and leave then. It's obviously not for you.
Plenty of older people like to play in snow, too.

We live in Castle Rock in a north facing house. We LOVE this area, beautiful mountain views but we do seem to get hammered with more snow than some other areas. Also--our last house was South facing and it was a lot easier to take care of the driveway & walks. We could not get rid of all the snow and ice last winter until April despite constant ice melt, shoveling, etc. I wouldn't rule out a house just because it is North facing but there is a difference when it comes to getting rid of the ice. North facing areas tend to get less direct sun & more shade.
I don't think you could pick a suburb or area around Denver that is going to be significantly different in terms of snow fall. Not enough of a difference that I would really be concerned if you like the area....unless you are thinking of getting up more into the mountains and I am sure they get significantly more.
