Default the classic story of going to school out west

Im sure you older guys have heard this a bunch but Im a senior in high school from Wisconsin and I want to find a way to go to college near the mountains.

I have already been accepted to Northern Michigan and I will be going there for cinematography if nothing else works out. I am an A and B student and I have had the same job for almost 2 years now
Out of state schools are just so expensive and I'm looking for a way around it. I am looking into all kinds of scholarships and I have thought about moving there to claim residency first.
How practical is it to wait to claim residency?

Just wondering if anyone here has realized this dream and what it takes to do it.

Go to Grand Junction, CO on the Westernslope. There is a college here called Mesa State College. They even over a health and wellness credit for snowboarding, skiing , or telemark. You are 45 mins away from Powderhorn, and most of the other resorts in colorado are within 2-3 hours. Plus if you like to bike, climb, raft, jeep, hunt, etc. the area has great outdoor things to do. When you look on the map it will look like we are further away but that is deceptive because drive time isn't that bad due to light traffic.
