Hope you know CU boulder is fucking expensive. My girl is transfering in there and lets just say one semester there costs more than I'd make in 3 years. Its also about an hour and a half from Summit county but it does have one awesome snowboard team. If you're doing community colleges you could do CMC and either go to the Breckenridge campus, Leadville, or Steamboat and have mountains all right by. Anything in SLC is going to put you by a ton of resorts. Tahoe has UNLV or at least I think thats it and that puts you by all the Tahoe Resorts.

Ultimately it really depends on what you want for an education or do you just want to live by a mountain and shred.

CU Boulder summed up: snowboard, party, and if you have time, go to school.

Boulder is a huge party scene. Everyone I know that went there said it was a really good time, but it was really difficult to keep on your schoolwork.

You better be a master of time management and self-control, or have enough dough to fail semesters until you learn your lesson.

The school and town are pretty bitchin' though.

I vent my frustrations at
