Well there is COP for a local park, which can be reached by transit, it take awhile though. You can probably also find rides (just ask me or someone once you've met them). There are plenty of hills around for all mountain skiing. People generally choose Sunshine or Lake Louise. I personally go to Kicking Horse, but my parents live in Golden, so it's achievable for me. So pick a hill, I'd say Louise, I love that hill. Sunshine is too mellow for me.
If you are a Big Mountain rider, definitely get a Louise Pass, student is $530 I think. Meet people and carpool, then pitch for gas, I'll be driving to Louise almost every weekend, also a first year university student.
it shouldn't' be too hard to get a ride up. I know myself and a few other ns'ers at u of c that head up pretty much every weekend. As for passes i'm getting a louise pass this season just cause i'm tired of sunshine and they really dropped the ball on their park this year. and i'm hoping to get some more mountain in that's closer to home instead of driving 3+ hrs. Mountain in the morning and park afternoon. it's way more accessible than sunshine.
if you want people who are more ski oriented and not just "lets get black out drunk every weekend and not be able to ski on the trip I paid $300 for cause i'm so hungover" join the u of c snowboard club instead. The ski club is 1/2 people who don't ski at all, over 1/4 are massive gapers and a minuscule amount are legit.
