I got all of those benefits from my group of friends when I came out to U of U. I guess if you go to a place like boulder where only 5% of the student body are legit skiers then a team would help you find them though. And the USC thing sounds pretty pimp with that house they can stay at and shit.
I don't even think Utah has a freestyle team, but I can tell you if it's a school you're considering it doesn't matter much because in the dorms you shouldn't have much of a problem finding a crew to do all those things with. No place to stay, but that doesn't matter much when your dorm room is 30-45 minutes from all the mountains.
Eh. I kind of disagree. Since I do ride on a "Freestyle team", Ive had nothing but great times learning new tricks and progressing my skills. It may differ between teams with coaching and all, But my coaches are some of the coolest and radest dudes (and girls) I know. Much respect to them.
