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.
Dude...I didn't realize you were here in boise!!!!!! Dafaq lol? Whats your schedule? We gotta ride this winter! Im always looking for cool peole to ride with.

see, what did I say? Bogus is pretty fun, and being so close you can't beat that. Sorry about last winter if it was your first season here, last season was just about bogus and brundage's worst winter on record, and by far the worst winter I have experienced in the 6 years I have lived here, complete garbage.

Haha yeah dude! I've been here the last year and a half! I have a house right by campus.

As far as my schedule goes, I'm only enrolled in 3 classes this semester, and I'm trying to get a liftie/instructor job up at Bogus this winter, so I'll hopefully be there a lot. Otherwise I'm pretty much free everyday after 2 and the weekends, we'll definitely have to shred this season!

Hahaha dude, last winter blew. I still managed like 35 days at Bogus/Tamarack/Jackson Hole but the snow was never anything good. Kind of a bummer but I'm thinking good things for this season.

Right on man! I have a place on the bunch, just up on Overland and Federal Way!

I was also considering trying to get a liftie job at bogus as well, if im gonna work, might as well work at a place I love! We will see how that goes though, they start hiring in october I was told, and I would have to find another job after the winter but whatever, yolo haha

Ya, last winter was trash. The season previous I rode 25 days, last year it was like 8, congrats on getting 35 in lol! Conditions still sucked ass. Im so looking forward to this winter! Every day im getting more anxious for the snow to start falling in the hills! Its starting to haunt my dreams lol! Well sometime we should meet up, grill some manly steaks and drink some beers or something lol, since we probably don't live more than 2 miles away.

Yeah dude, I was talking to a ski instructor in one of my classes and he said they were absolutely hurting for snowboard instructors this year, so I went ahead and applied for that and liftie. Either way you get a free season pass

Yeah, it was definitely a stretch to get 35 last season, some days had pretty horrendous conditions. Can't wait for the white stuff to start falling in the foothills.

Huh, being a snowboard instructor would bee pretty awesome too. What qualifications did the guy say you needed/do u have. Have u passed the level 1/2 instructor class or do u still need to do that? As long as I can make 150ish a week ill be set. I think I'll also apply for the same things u did.

Just throwing this out there, but do u want to pm me your number so I have it for future reference? And I'll send u mine of course? My names mark btw.

As far as I know, you don't necessarily have to be an amazing snowboarder or any AASI qualifications, as much as you need an ability and want to work/teach children and a good amount of patience. I'm pretty sure most instructors don't even get their AASI Level 1 until after they teach a year or two to see if it's an investment they're willing to make.

Yeah, I'll send a PM your way.

UC Davis. A little far from tahoe, but it's a great school.

There's a lot of options out there. In addition to the above, there's UC Merced and Fresno State near China Peak and Badger Pass (also probaby 4/5 hours from Tahoe). Utah State also in SLC. Northern Arizona in Flagstaff right next to Arizona Sun Bowl. Cerro Coso Community College in Mammoth Lakes (5 min bus ride to lifts).

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.
