Look up skeeze.org that is the ski/snowboard club for the clairemont colleges. I went to Cal Poly Pomona which is about 15 min away. Mt Baldy is less then 30 min away from your school, Mt high is a little less than an hour, Bear Mtn is about 1.5 hours and Mammoth is about 5.5 hours away. There is information about all these mountains in the forums. If you would like more information send me a pm.
