Looks vaguely like one of those extremely high elevation towns in New Mexico or California.

E. Summer nights are too cold. Add 10 degrees (C) to the summer lows and the rating would be a C.

Why do cool summers bother you that much when it has very warm winters comparing to Saskatoon?

I like to have some seasonal contrast. It would be terrible to live in place where I need a jacket on every night of the year. In addition, I like gardening

Summers are too dry and have way too much diurnal range with way too many subfreezing nights in a season where I should be swimming in an outdoor pool. While I like some winter snow, I also like some winter sun and it seems too gloomy in winter with very little sun between snow events. I give it an E+

I'd like a little more sunshine in the winter, and a little more rain in the summer, but other than that, it's really not bad at all.
