cu is the best university in colorado. why wouldn't you want to go there? the only other division one college is colorado state and it is an extra hour to get to the mountains from their, besides the fact that it isn't as fun or good of a school as cu.
In colorado there is Colorado College (expensive not recomended) CSU and CU (which are easy to find info on) Rocky Mountain colleges (on the mountains but not the greatest reputation). Western State is in Grand Junction and is a party scoolh. UNC in Greelley is ok a couple of my friends are there. I'm goin to Colorado School of Mines, which is an hour away from summit county. It is the toughest , hardest schoolk in colorado and a sauage factory. Yeah it blows but I wanna go to the best.
Univeristy of Utah is the best by far! Park City for killer park, Alta and Snowbird for everything else! And 500' of annual snow! And there all less than an hour away! Awesome dorms cuz they were made for the Olympics and everybody skis or boards, and most are incredibly good! Come here! NOW!
whoever said it doesnt snow in Colorado anymore obviously doesn't live here. It was fuckin dumping on the way to class here at CSU today, so shut the fuck up. Colorado is by far the best place to go for college anyway. Read up before you open your mouth Bakerboy
U of Colorado at Boulder is your best bet in terms of a balance between a good education and ski accessibility. School of Mines is a a really good school for a certain majors. Wasted (Western) State is just that.
CU is fucking awesome. Eldo 'sucky mountain' is 30min away and have a park going. Then there are all the other mountains like 2hrs away. AND the Xgames with ski and snowboard club will kick total ass this weekend.
Yea my neighbor goes to UCol at Boulder, its a big party school so I've heard. Another friend of mine goes to UU at Salt Lake and skis Alta and Snowbird a hell of a lot. I am not sure how they are on the education side, but fromt he skiing standpoint you can't go wrong.
You Dropped Your Pocket!
go to WWU, baker is like an hour away and there are a few that go every day, or go to simon fraisur(sp) University in vancouver you have 3 hills and whistler within in a few hour drive. WEST SIDE TILL I DIE!
nosnjection....you must drive freakin fast because i live in sacramento and it takes me over two hours to get tahoe...
ne ways...i'm going through the same situation of picking a school that i want to go to, i decided to go to UNR because its about 30 mins from all the nice ski resorts and it's in reno so you get the whole city feel too
it takes an hour and a half from davis to donner summit if you average about 70. It's about 2 hours to make it to the actual lake. UCD is a better school than any mentioned here, but expensive as hell for out of staters, just like CU. definitely worth a look if you can get in and can afford it
BAKER HAS THE WORLD RECORD FOR SNOWFALL. 1141 INCHES IN ONE FUCKING SEASON. THE SNOW LINING THE ROADS WAS 30FT HIGH - DUMP TRUCKS HAD TO DRIVE UP TO THE MOUTAIN AND BRING SNOW DOWN BECAUSE THE BLOWERS COULDN'T BLOW IT OVER 30 FT. DO YOU KNOW WHAT ITS LIKE TO SNOW A FOOT AND A HALF EVERY DAY FOR A MONTH? but thats okay, i'd rather go ski in colorado.
the white n word
the debate between CU and CSU will always rage on. CU is closer, and people who don't know better say ''CU is the biggest party school'' simply because someone wrote it in a magazine. (obviously the largest school in the state will have the most parties, but i've had more fun at CSU parties than any CU party i've been to) Boulder people are pretty fucking stupid though, and ft collins is a lot more laid back.....CU does have that advantage of being closer to the main resorts, but ft collins is only an hour away from cameron pass, which provides ample BC riding.
either way, if you're out of state you're going to get a rod slammed up your ass for tuition, and said rod will be wrapped in sandpaper if you go to CU.
i'd still recommend CU just from a skiing standpoint though, especially if you only ski in bounds most of the time
trust me Utah is the place to go. don't worrie about partying cause if you go to school in utah to ski you will meet tons of other people who did as well and you can party with them. pot is easy to find if that is your thing. and it is always dank. the school has a good business program as well as engeniering, english, and film. it isn't as good of a school as boulder, but it is so much cheaper. the dorms are tight and the ladies are so fine. Pc is only 40 minutes away. snowbird is 22 miles from campus. the good resorts are over an hour from CU boulder. there are tons of urban rails in salt lake city and the city isn't too big, but it is big enough. also pc's park is sick enough to draw mad pros in the likes of cr, mickel, tanner, pep, turpin, the list goes on.
go to utah.
^ see i've only been to salt lake city, and the mormons are all over and it seemed ultraconservative......but honestly that wasn't what made my decision there's no way i could ever have afforded out of state tuition
Next year I'm heding to either, Colorado Mountain College, which is right at the base of Steamboat, or Sierra Nevada University which is right near Squaw Valley, I'll most likly end up at the latter, just because it's SQUAW VALLY!!!

Ski Wasted State and earn a degree in your spare time. Actually consider CMC for a year until you qualify for instate tuition. Breck, Steamboat,Aspen, Vail, etc.
The problem with UT or MT is at the end of the day
you're in UT or MT
Everyone out of state needs to chill about the whole Utah/Mormon thing. If you've only been for vacation or whatever, dont talk about what the state is like. Come live here for a year. Great parties everywhere, dank weed for good prices, alcohol kinda sucks, but thats what Wyoming is for. Skiing is better and closer than any CO school, and the chicks are hotter.
plus the more people who aren't from Utah who move to Utah means more people who aren't from Utah and that means less mormans per capita ie it is getting a lot better every year here.
Western State is the place to be if you want a small school that's not too hard. You can live in CB and drive 25 miles to school a few days a week. The best inbounds steeps in CO when the snow is good.....and when it's not there is thousands upon thousands of backcountry oppurtunities just outside your door. The environmental studies and outdoor rec. majors rival some of the best schools around too. Plus the summers here are fucking awesome. And now that Okemo has bought Crested Butte the park should be off the hook. It's already majorly improved this year.
Look... A mountain RAM. Staring contest. Me and you. You don't even blink do you? You win. You always do. Goulet.
man, colorado is fucking running out of snow now. in evergreen, its only snowed a 3 or 4 times, a few inches each time. the resorts are sucking too. CU is the best though
WWU is close to baker, whistler, grouse, stevens, alpental, snoqualmie, those other 2 resorts in vancouver (i forget the names) its a good spot for pow and parks

im mormon. ha but i picked a small college next to the canyons. or like 40 minutes from there. i would say you will definetly find a party in utah not all mormons are boring conservatives. cheap pass to the canyons is like 360 i think. im stoked. and i love skiing.
Picture a pasture open to all. It is expected that each herdsman willl try to keep as many cattle on the pasture. when a herder adds a cow to the pasture, he reaps the benefits of a larger herd. Meanwhile the cost of the animal - damage done to the pasture - is divided among all the herdsmen....... the herdsmen are getting nervous. putting more cattle on the pasture isnt helping anyone.
