Colorado and not cold man? Seriously it's been negative 30 or more in most of the towns near resorts. Move to Golden, Boulder, or Denver if you want warmth.

Thats an oxymoron if I have ever heard one.... a place to live and snowboard that's not cold. Lol. Move to Dubai and snowboard in the big indoor mountain. Lol. Really though. Living in west Denver will keep you warmer, relatively speaking, and keep you like 90 minutes from the slopes.

it's funny because my parents would have kick fucked me rather than asked my opinion on the matter.

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.

Closest skiing to the Springs is over 2 hours away. Breckenridge or Monarch are your best bets, but it is a drive. Two weeks ago, schools were closed due to the sustained sub-zero temps. It tends to be a bit cooler in the Springs than in Denver. Plus, the drive to the resort is on back roads, so they aren't the primary focus during storms. The traffic might beat you up on I-70, but the roads get more attention than the 2 lane roads and often tend to be clearer.

.............dude..... my mind is boggling. Did you really just ask about towns next to ski resorts that don't get cold?

Hmm, Gatlinburg, TN and Sugar Mountain, NC. They are both next to ski resorts and don't get cold.... the only downside is that both of those mountains suck.

I don't know how old you are (12?), but as a rule... most areas that get enough snow to be nice ski resorts are generally pretty cold. This is because it only snows when it is cold outside.
