whats a good Western snowboarding college?
 
im currently a freshman at the University of Connecticut and miss being able to board all the time so I've made the decision to throw the icy mounds of the East behind me and move out West to school. Basically i'm just lookin for a nice place close to good mountains with just a chill lifestlyle..I don't need that whole bonehead drunks tipping cars over scene that is so popular here. Just a good place to chill out, toke a little, and board some nice powder runs and parks you know? any suggestions would be great...im looking at the University of Utah right now cuz it seems like its the closest to the most prime resort areas but i could be mislead.....

thanks

Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff is just minutes from Snowbowl Arizona Snowbowl - Flagstaff's ski area is a great place to escape the summer heat and a few hours from Sunrise Resort. Plus the Colorado resorts are not too far. When I went to ASU I would hit snowbowl or sunrise on weekends and it was a really fun time. 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.

University of Sierra Nevada at Tahoe. 1 resort within a mile, something like 10 resorts within 45 minutes.

Oh did you finally get that Bataleon?:eek:

The point is: there are plenty of places ( Universities close to resorts) that would be a better place live off season than Reno.

We got Portland State University or University of Portland(Catholic University)....within an hour of Timberline Ski Resort that is one of the only mountains in the United States open pretty much year round(weather permitting).
Or theres Mount Hood Community College or Portland Community College...uhm theres satellite campuses for Oregon State and OIT(Oregon Institute of Technology) in the Portland area as well. 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).

Come up to Canada to go to university. Your money is worth more here we have good schools and tons of great mountains
