Agreed that the winters are pretty mild in CO, but they can also be quite bitterly cold. We lived in Boulder for 2 years and the last winter we were there, we had a week long cold snap where the temperatures didn't get above -10F!! I don't think even the hardiest flytraps could survive that, but I've not done much experimentation with keeping them frozen for extended periods of time. I don't think the altitude really affected Venus flytraps much, at least not that I could see.
I did leave some flytraps outside all winter here in Ashland for a couple of winters. Our winters are quite mild, with the coldest temperatures being in the single digits to teens and average lows in the upper 20s or low 30s. In a very large pot, the Venus flytraps all survived just fine (they were B52s), even the smallest ones. But in smaller pots, they all perished.
