Yeah, I'll send a PM your way.
Oh awesome. Sounds good. I'll give it a shot.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

CU in Boulder is close to Eldora. I wouldn't call it a "resort" but it gets the job done. And season passes are $140 for students!

If I need a university, had the resources and wanted to shred...this place is well situated and I hear there is a screaming deal on passes.

Quest University Canada - Welcome


on another note...rumor is that the local hill is hard up for employees and instructors

UVM is in a cool town with some great riding less than 2 hours away. An hour away you have Stowe, Smuggs and Bush. Bolton Valley even closer. Hour and a half to Jay. Hour and a half across the lake to Whiteface.

If you are smart and rich you could go to Middlebury and you then have your own Mountain with the Snow Bowl.. Bush an hour away and Stowe and hour and a half.

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.

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

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

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.
