Dude you must be retarded if you want to go to an american university. If you are super set on getting out west then check out UBC Okanagan campus or UBC vancouver, University of Calgary has great skiing within a few hours.
Im from Onterrible as well and I rolled into Quebec this year for school. Im at bishops university and we have like eight hills within an hour or something including Jay Peak which is arguably the best pow skiing on the east coast as well as Bromont which has a wicked awesome park.
Alot of the skiing around bishops is showcased in my edit from this year.
PM me if you have any questions.
