Mn does sound stupid for a snowboard destination(Its not the rockys duh).

But, for a college student who wants to ride a lot affordably, Duluth is hard to beat. You could ride spirit every day for CHEAP! college passes are $110 with no limits.

There is also both Mont du lac (which has a great park) and chester bowl right in town. And tons of urban shit if your into that. Plus Lutsen is only an hour and a half drive, and Mt.bohemia is 4.

Besides Umd you have st.scholasitca, university wisconsin superior, and lake superior college. All of which are pretty good schools.

Otherwise Montana state would be good, you might want to look at Michigan tech too.

thats my 2 cents
