Aldo Sfalcin runs cycling camps there, might be a good first contact.
Just saw this - Flagstaff is a pretty good and inexpensive place (though the biking routes aren't great). About five years ago, I drove up there from PHX after a conference and trained for a few days. I loved it and have been going up there in the spring ever since. The NAU Wall Aquatic center is state of the art (I think the Brazilian team was there when I was) and Buffalo Park has a nice track to run. I will usually hike Mt. Humphreys at least once a visit and just hang out. It's a blue collar college town and fairly cheap. Not for everyone, but if you're trying to simplify things and get some training in, I highly recommend.
Drop down into SLC/Draper, and you can sleep at 4500ft. Draper also has 50+ miles of trails.
Little and Big Cottonwood, Empire Pass, Guardsman's are all 3500ft climbs within an hour.
As previously mentioned the Mammoth/Owens Valley area looks good and it is easy to get to high altitude .....

My nephew took his kids (teen age boys and a girl) up to that area last summer for about 2 weeks and they had a great time dirt biking (motorcycles) and camping.
+1 mph Faster
Driving up to Mammmoth tomorrow for a week of skiing. On our Spring trips we generally ski mornings and hike in the afternoons but with the amount of snow this year and top half of the mountain in winter conditions looks like weâ€™ll be mostly skiing.
Iâ€™m sure there will be cycling and running groups out in the Owens Valley.
Train safe & smart
This was my thought - ticks all the boxes. Did some training for IM Canada up there last year including 100 milers
