So I'm looking at doing exchange for a semester next year and I want to do it somewhere I can ski. I thought I'd ask NS for where, out of the following, would provide the most fun place to go. Ease of access needs to be factored in too, as I won't have a car. I'm looking for a mountain that has a bit of everything in bounds.
I've narrowed it down to these across the usa:
Buffalo State College
California State University San Marcos
Colorado School of Mines
University of (Northern) Iowa (State)
Western Washington University
or the university of Oslo in Norway, but I think it will prove to be too many donjis to live there.
some input would be muuuch appreciated
