yeah i can totally understand. i visited and i could definitely tell that the vibe there wouldn't work for everyone. but hey, i liked it, and seattle is awesome. i also checked out UW, which i really liked, but the fact that it's 35,000 kids is overwhelming, and i am almost certain that the size would make my grades suffer. i could also get scholarships to spu, but not UW, whose tuition is going up 14% for next year.
basically, i'm just curious about the skiing. i know that snoqualmie/alpental are like 50 minutes and stevens is like 1:45, right? anyhow, i'm thinking that i would be doing a lot of afternoon/night skiing at snoqualmie, and then hit up stevens on weekends/pow days. would that make sense? cause i doubt at a small private school like spu i would have much flexibility in being able to have a lot of days off for skiing.
