I'm looking at coming to the USA for an exchange year 2017/18. I am ideally looking for the best university for research and of course the best for skiing! I am studying environmental science with a particular interest in how climate change is affecting the snow-sports industry and how we can make the industry more sustainable. As for skiing, i'd say i'm an advanced skier with a particular interest in back country, touring and free ride.
Suggestions so far have included WWU, Montana State, Colorado Mesa, Westminster College & Utah State. Unfortunately, Boulder and Uni of Utah don't offer exchanges.
Any help would be amaaazing, its really hard to get a feel for the different places being in the UK!
