I can think of a couple. If you want to get into skis and what they are made of look into Material Science Engineering, don't know if CU has that program but CSM does. You can get into lift design by being a Civil or Mechanical. You could be mechanical or chemical and get into snow guns. A buddy of mine just applied at Breck as a computer programmer. You could be a process engineer and redefine the way skis are produced. Obviously you have lots of options.
I go to Michigan Technological University and all we do is engineering. We have an enterprise group that made a couple snowboards two years and and an up-flat-down box last year. There is a lot of us striving engineers who can't get enough of skiing and snowboarding. Hell I have crazy 5 hour blocks on MWF next semester so I get TR off and can just rip all day.
Also if you are in the Midwest and you want to be an Engineer or pay a lot for a business school and want to ski all the time come to Michigan Tech. I mean we own a ski hill and Mt Bohemia (the whats what of Midwest riding) is 45 min away. I get 2 season passes for $349 which is awesome. Plus you have to take P.E. credits to graduate and you can taking beg, int, adv, and freestyle skiing and snowboarding classes at the hill. Oh and also Ski patrol class and get certified.
The hill is a 2 min drive from the dorms, I can see the lift lines from my APT. Plus Mt. Bohemia which is sick. And we get a ton of snow 300+ and year which rocks for Midwest.
So ya ramble, ramble, I hope I helped you dude.
Mt Bohemia (in all its glory)
