Just go to DU. They're on the quarter system. I used to take Winter quarter off. Skied pretty much every day.
man heres from my first hand opinion.
I went to college in vancouver for a year and a half so I could ski (from east coast), then I just plain dropped out because I wasn't focused enough and moved up to whistler and skied everyday, this made my life 10x better and I'd wake up every morning thinking of how awesome my life was. If your really wondering how many days a week you can ski with school just don't go to school, do it later. I'm going back to ottawa and doing fall semesters at a college there and moving to a ski resort in the winter (talked to scott hibbert he did the same). Seriously man, just take a year off, move up to wherever you want, you will not regret it, do it while your young and can still get mad air and do sweet shit.
anyway, thats my two cents, peace.
Dude you're hurting my feelings! Actually, you can't spell dumbass without DU. ...and what's wrong with being a degenerate?
If you are in Business school or a pie major like pschology, English, etc and are decently smart, then yes, if you schedule very efficiently. Also, you need to be able to ride hard all day and still be able to do schoolwork at night, and compromises will be made llike social life extracurricular involvement etc.
I assuming your parents are going to be paying for everything, because I doubt you can be a full-time student, ski 5 days a week and hold a job enough hours a week to support yourself, just doesn't appear to be enough hours in the day, although I am sure there are people who are doing that.
In my experience, I have only been able to ski 3 days or 4 a week at most without grades being affected. But, I personally am not good at skiing all day and being able to stay awake all night and do homework, I work much better in the mornings when I am fresh. I personally think that if all you care about is skiing, you should just ski and work, and do college later when you will actually apply yourself. If you try to do the ski 5 days a week, and do full time classes either you aren't going to live up to the full potential of your skiing, and you will be dissapointed, or your grades will be sub-par and you will be dissapointed.
Or just come here knowing you are going to get a nice education, be surrounded with hot women, and get to ski a fair amount and just be happy.
Period. There's no reason to go to college if you don't plan on putting effort into it. If you really want to ski all the time, just go in the fall and summer, and take the spring semester off as was mentioned earlier. You're paying too much money to go to school, especially CU if you're out of state, to just go skiing.
if you think that already than that is MORE of a reason to do it, go and live your life until you feel your ready to get on with the boring part. Living here in whistler has made me realize that you should be in love with the life you have, why make your life difficult?
if you can ski everyday, fuck hot girls and live in a pretty decent house then what else is there? You eventually have to grow up and get on with your life but taking 1 or 2 years off in between isnt going to effect you in the least. it will actually effect you in a positive way because like myself i had no idea what i wanted to do when i got out of highschool so i just did business administration. so i wasted a bunch of time and money when i could have been skiing. now i know what i really want to do, which is advertising because it uses more creativity... you'll learn a lot about yourself in the time you take off and you'll also grow up a bit.
