i'd say seattle, but the only problem is getting around. i actually planned a spring break trip to washington this season, but ended up going to park city instead because i'm only 20 and can't rent a car. just something to think about.
Man, if you hit the PNW at the right time, it could be fucking epic. I want to ski the PNW during a huge storm. Dream telling time! Since the PNW isn't that far from CA, when I see a storm heading in up there, I'm going to drive all day up to there and ski 8ft. of fresh! Fuck yeah. End of dream telling. I would go to Seattle, it is an amzing city, so much cool culture there.

I've been to both Denver and Seattle and visited both schools, and skied both places. Seattle is so fucking baller, the city is the tightest place and the skiing is really cool too. I haven't visited SU but UW is awesome. I'd say seattle for sure
I went to DU for the past two years. Great school and so many people there ski that if you stay at school any given weekend during winter quarter, there's nothing to do because everyone dips to the mountains. well, i wouldn't say nothing, but the school is dead during winter quarter. if you can afford it and/or you can get a scholarship i highly suggest checking it out.
feel free to pm me if you got any questions about it.
i grew up in seattle and went to CU for two years, pretty much both amazing places. school wise i love CU but am transferring to UW because of money. for the skiing, summit is mostly park or groomers and a lot more tourist oriented. WA is more pow and steeps, and more down to earth. both are awesome for sure. hit me up if you got specific questions on either spot
true, but i feel like the terrain in WA owns A-basin anyday, not to mention the coverage is almost always sketch there... i didn't do much BC in CO so i can't speak to that, heard amazing things about east vail though.
Dude, I just did this.
i went through colorado, skied a basin, then went to utah, then i went to washington and skied hood and looked at the university of washington.
i would def suggest going to colorado, especially if a basin is still open. i thought the schools there were way better suited to me. also university of utah is in the runnings, but univ ersity of washington is out. and when i went to hood it was closed 3 days out of 4 so that sucked. and i dont really know what is open to public now.
the reason i didint like washington was because it is such a good school, i wouldnt be able to get as much in scholorship money becaus ei would be up against more smarter kids. and when i was there they said that they were not going to give out many out of state scholorships because of the economy, and the college was not very outdoors oriented like UU and CU are. I also checked out DU, and that school is really nice, but again it would be too much more expensive than the other schools, and less scholorships.
Also i suggest considering UU, people says theres lots of mormons, but all the mormons go to BYU, and so there is not a very big population at UU. and the dorms there are the rooms that the olympains used. they were made just for the olympics so they are likie 3 times athe size, and the school didnt have to pay for them so they are way cheaper too.
