MrTrevI am a high school senior based out of eastern Washington, and as I look for college I’ve gotten some scholarship offers from Montana State in Bozeman. My question is it worth going to school there just so I can spend my winters on Bridger Bowl? Is it relatively affordable, how good is the skiing there, is it too busy, and is it worth spending the fall and spring in Bozeman when there isn’t skiing?
WyattLoneyThe skiing here is always pretty good and the seasons can last pretty late, the housing is kind of on the expensive side, I’d say a 2 bed apartment usually is around $1250/ month
Kronah1As someone who went to school in Boulder, $1250/month for a two bedroom would have been a DREAM.
No.QuarterI'm not trying to downplay getting a scholarship (I'm assuming WUE), but do you think you are really dedicated enough to balance college and the distraction of having some intense fucking skiing 30 minutes away? I'm not joking when I say that Bridger is a serious drug, I know so many people who have pretty much thrown away their education, physical, and mental health because of it. My spring semester of my junior year I was taking 18 credits of engineering classes and skiing 4 days a week and I barely passed, I was really stressed and depressed all the time, an alcoholic and stoner, and broke my body pretty bad.
