Sierra Nevada and SLC. The college should have priority over snowboarding though. Unless you're just getting a quick associates then I would pick the college and then see where the resorts are.

There's always the University of Minnesota, Duluth. It's just a couple minutes from Spirit Mountain. It's not a huge resort, but it has a mile long run and one of the best terrain parks in the midwest.

I go to Boise State University and I'm 30 minutes from the nearest resort that's actually pretty fun. 2 hours from Sun Valley, Brundage, and Tamarack Resorts, 5-6 hours from Jackson Hole, Grand Targhee, and Park City, the list goes on.

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.

this. 20 minutes to the hill, you can hitch-hike up every day, and lots of the time it's dumping on the hill and sunny down in town...

Mn does sound stupid for a snowboard destination(Its not the rockys duh).

But, for a college student who wants to ride a lot affordably, Duluth is hard to beat. You could ride spirit every day for CHEAP! college passes are $110 with no limits.

There is also both Mont du lac (which has a great park) and chester bowl right in town. And tons of urban shit if your into that. Plus Lutsen is only an hour and a half drive, and Mt.bohemia is 4.

Besides Umd you have st.scholasitca, university wisconsin superior, and lake superior college. All of which are pretty good schools.

Otherwise Montana state would be good, you might want to look at Michigan tech too.

thats my 2 cents

Pretty much what I was thinking when I wrote it. It obviously won't have the appeal of the Rockies but it's super close to a few schools, has a great park, and is extremely cheap.

Montana State University in Bozeman has Bridger Bowl
