Default Going to college next year

Hey ive been looking at a couple colleges for next year and I was wondering if anyone could tell me about the riding near boulder colorado as well as spokane and seattle washington. I know colorado is kick ass but I mean I dont really know anything execpt than those big name resorts. What other options do I have? I also might get into UC davis which is much closer to lake Tahoe (where I usually go snowboarding) than where I live now. Which do you think is the best bet (Davis, Spokane, Seattle or Boulder)??

Thanks
-Kyle

I go to CU Boulder and I love it. I used to live in Washington and the thought of living in Spokane isn't too appealing to me :P If you can handle 8 months of rain, maybe Seattle is for you but fuck that.

Closest place to go snowboarding to Boulder is Eldora near Nederland. ~35 minute drive. There's a free bus (with student ID card) that goes up there once every hour during the day, definitely get a snowboard bag though. They freak out on you if you get on a city bus with a board w/o a bag. They sell season passes to Eldora early in the school year for $130. Lift ticket is ~$60 full/$50 half.

The next closest place is A-Basin/Loveland I think. About ~1.5hr - 2hr drive.

If you live here and have the cash, it's definitely worth getting a pass. Personally I have an EPIC Pass which is good for A-Basin/Keystone/Breckenridge/Vail/Beaver Creek/Heavenly for $630. There's a cheaper one for Winter Park/Copper Mountain but I'm not too sure on the pricing for that..

There's a ski/snowboard club at CU too. Membership is like $60 for 5 years or $35 for 1. They do a lot of trips that are relatively inexpensive. Definitely worth checking out. Boulder Freeride: The Ski and Snowboard Club @ CU

If you have any other questions, let me know.

That sounds great. Whats so bad about living in spokane i really dont know much about the area. Im actually gonna be visiting up there this weekend and i might have a chance to do a little snowboarding.

Boulder is definitely on the top of my list though 2nd with davis. I live in a town that is almost exactly like boulder except on the beach ahah

I dunno, just the thought of living in Spokane was meh when I could go to Seattle/Bellingham or Colorado. I didn't really go east of the Cascades much because it seemed like there wasn't much over there. I'm probably not the best person to ask since I'm pretty biased against the Pacific NW lol.
