katieleigh970 Colorado Mountain college is close to plenty resorts (but it doesn't offer many majors). CSU is about a 2 hour drive (but its worth it). There is also CU, and University of Denver. Although might be moving to Montana next year for MSU which I hear is also close to a resort.

You're ~30 minutes from over 10 resorts, an average of 500 inches of snow per year and amazing backcounty as well as a city which gets around 90 inches of snow per year.
Because people are afraid of Mormons lol

There's University of Utah in SLC.
Portland State University is pretty close to Mt. Hood.
Western Washington is near Mt. Baker.
There are OSU and UO Satellite Campuses in Bend, OR near Mt. Bachelor.
University Nevada - Reno is near Tahoe.

Take your pick.
I was walkin to class today and thought to myself and noticed a couple of street spots around campus that look like fun haha

There's a ton of options. I'd say find what you want to study and I'm sure there's probably a school near a resort. Some of these schools also have snow study majors, if you're into weather, snow, avalanche studies.
Dont waste your time in Flagstaff at SnowBowl, I live 2 hours from it and still choose to drive an extra hour and half to go to our other mountain...their park is decent tho

hikeswithdogs Boulder is super nice but $$$$$ , 4 epic resorts within 30 minutes of any school around the Salt lake City metro area.......seems like a no brainer to me.
