Denver for cooler summers, although they're still very warm.

Denver can get 70 degree days in any month!

More sunshine too, gets my vote!

I vote for Denver and I live in SLC.

Weather always seems to be extreme here... there is no middle ground. Either you're freezing to death or burning up.

Also, winter inversions in Salt Lake give us Bejing-like air quality for weeks at a time every year and the climate is drier than Denver's.

But the scenery is better... the Wasatch Mountains are much prettier than the Front range and I think Utah outdoes Colorado in general for scenic beauty and natural variety.

But the weather here isn't all bad... after all, a harsh land breeds stout people.

Salt Lake City for the cooler winters, though I guess averages aren't as meaningful out there.

I don't mind semi-arid climates, but places like Denver and SLC are too warm and sunny. I prefer the more moderated semi-arid climates with more stability, less sunshine, colder winters, and cooler summers...like parts of BC Canada and Washington state.

Denver

I like the wild temperature swings, one day it's warm, next day 40 degrees cooler

Denver in the winter (for chinook winds, less snow, and no fog inversions), SLC the rest of the year (for more consistent warm and hot weather, drier summers, and warmer summer nights).

Denver. One of my favorite climates in the U.S. If the average summer highs were a bit cooler, it'd be perfect.
