You don't happen to attend the Naval Academy do you? Haha.
Colorado Springs has just about the same access to all the resorts the Denver metro area has. Just a bit longer of a drive. Your best bet would be to look up local transportation to get you up there.
You have plenty of resorts to choose from: Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain, Arapahoe Basin, Echo Mountain (although those last three aren't resorts). Your biggest problem would definitely be transportation. It'll be a good hour and a half to two hours and half trip to the nearest resort.
Take yourself to higher places.
