i think its only fair, right now you can get into a good college easily with the small niche sports like crew, lacrosse, and waterpolo... i think colleges should have freeskiing teams too...title 9 will screw it over tho...
.MASSHOLE.No money in it. You would need schools that profit from other sports (basketball and football primarily) to offset the costs for the ski team. It would also be extremely limited in regards to location (primarily CO, UT, VT, WA, NM?) and very few of these schools have "big" sports programs, excluding UU, CU and DU that are close enough to mountains.
Besides, it would probably end up like NCAA racing anyway. Ex-National team skiers from Europe and Canada getting a free education to ski.
SpssBut colleges already have tons of sports that dont make money. Womens gymnastics, squash, womens anything really.
I think its unfair to freeskiers that their chosen sport wont help them get into college, while a ton of other decidedly gay sports will.
