nikkinopolesI'm from Colorado, and don't get me wrong, we have some dope schools there, but to put this in perspective, Eldora is 45 minutes away from CU Boulder and that's the closest ski resort. If you wanna go somewhere better, it's gonna be more like an hour and a half commute.
This is spot on. People don't realize how far Boulder is from decent skiing.
CSU is much farther from ski resorts, although there are plenty of good turns to be earned near Fort Collins.
Mines and ft. Lewis are significantly closer to skiing, as well as cmc breck/steamboat/gunnison.
