As president of the USC team, I gotta encourage you to at least take a look at applying here, but there are a plenty of SoCal schools with good clubs. Take a look at UC Santa Barbara, UC San Diego, or UCLA. They all have pretty solid teams and go up to Mammoth a lot. All the SoCal teams get together to party and compete up there, so it makes for a pretty epic winter. Also, Chapman, Loyola Marymont, and Claremont have active teams too. All depends on what you wanna study and which school fits you best!
