Better idea. Go to a target or semi target school for undergrad. Learn the snow sports industry and hospitality industry supply chains backwards and forwards. Learn to read 10ks and do financial modeling in your sleep. Get an internship in the industry. Go to a big name program...Tuck, Johnson, Stern...somewhere in the northeast. Convince a high growth brand you can chip away at Burton's rental chokehold in the botique resort market. Get paid 5 to 10 times as much. Get as many days on the mountain. Fly to Breck with company jet. Done.

And for god sakes tell your parents to buy you a helmet!
