All within an hour and a half of Timberline and our other 2 ski spots on Mt Hood during the winter season, Mt Hood Meadows and SkiBowl(largest night skiing in the US i think).

You could become a Duck or a Beaver.

Palmer glacier is open for about as long as you could want.

montana (where i wish i went to college...granted i'd still be a freshman for the next ten years)

utah (u of u or westminster)

colorado (regis, d.u., fort lewis [aka fort fun], western state [aka wasted state] boulder or school of mines-high dick ration, very few vah-j-j's)

idaho

no offense to the az heads in here, but fuck that entire state.

you guys barely get shit for snow and the seasons can be as short as two weeks. phx is strip mall culture, a lot of people are transplants and keep to themselves, and it's got this weird vibe of a police state (cops are every where with portable d.u.i. stations). then there is the heat... you could go to hell to find cooler temperatures.

You could literally be hanging at the pool in Phoenix and drive 2 hours and be in 6 feet of snow lol. I never hear much about the mountain but the boarding was always really good and reminded of the Colorado resorts. This was in the 90s so not sure how the snow has been lately but Flagstaff is a cool town.
yeah thats all me right there GO DEVILS!! haha but no literally I wear flip flops all year long swim in the summer and now ill be boarding in the winter...

The University of California at Davis or Sacramento State University in Sacramento wouldn't be bad. Also California State University, Sacramento is here. About an hour or two from all the Tahoe resorts, depending on I80 road conditions. Plus, both Davis and Sacramento are close to everything else you'd ever want to do as well. Surfing is only a couple of hours away, San Francisco is close, Napa Valley is close, Lake Tahoe during the summer is awesome, ClearLake is a few hours north of Sacramento... this is really an amazing area. Davis is a great city too, with an awesome vibe. Sacramento isn't bad, depending on where you can afford to live, but if you are on the Sac State campus or CSU campus it's supposed to be awesome.

Reno isn't that bad. I like going to the El Dorado and playing craps there.

Reno is close enough to the Tahoe area that you could go camping, hiking, canoeing, whitewater rafting, climbing or just about any other outdoor sport you wanted to do. Obviously, as already mentioned, Reno is very close to all the Tahoe area resorts, and you could literally walk to Mt. Rose. Reno isn't a bad place to live. It's safe, relatively quiet and the cost of living isn't too bad.

Ha, I just applied to 8 colleges and made sure they had one thing in common - some sort of snowboarding nearby. Ended up choosing University of Oregon which is good for a number of reasons, including the mountains of Oregon.
