Save that article to include with your application to MIT! (Or Cornell, It's closer to Greek Peak.)
Hey, maybe you can trade your services to Greek Peak for some free lift tickets. You could help them get that back side open sooner!
Meanwhile, I'm still "Dreaming of a ......."
haha thanks guys...and yeah I'm deff. not going to college where there is no skiing! If there isn't a mountain within an hour I don't belong there!
Check out the School of Mines in Golden Colorado. Nearby ski areas (<1.5 hrs) include Eldora, Loveland, A-Basin, Copper, Breckenridge, Winter Park and Keystone. Just a little further are Steamboat, Vail & Beaver Creek.

And don't forget almost stumbling distance to the Coors Brewery
Colorado State is in Fort Collins about an hour up the front range from Boulder..I went to Wyoming...Go Pokes.
CU...U of Colorado in Boulder is a busy fun town. I always felt Boulder was a combo of San Francisco and New York. The Dark Horse(fun bar) and Mustard's Last Stand...just love the name.
As mentioned before Ft Collins is a drive to ski areas, Boulder is better. You might check out Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs..it's only a 2 yr college but what a 2 years you could have.
For Colorado, Western State is in Gunnison, very close to Crested Butte and Colarado Mountain College is well known for it's SAM program.
In Vermont, regarding Ski Area Management, GMC is a very expensive private school. Lyndon State has a very good rep for this and we have at least 2 posters here that currently go there, one I think is in the SAM program, both would be able to give you lots of info about the school.
I'm impressed...You should post and/or market the plans for making those.
If you're looking for quality eastern skiing with a good education on the side, I'd check out Middlebury College... No resort management program, but couple a solid liberal arts/engineering degree with an internship at a major resort (Intrawest?), preferably in the Rockies, and you're in just as good shape as any GMC grad. If you ever want to come and check it out, drop me an email.
What are your thoughts on Green Mountain College in VT and Colorado State at Boulder? for GMC i was considering ski resort management I know it's not the most practical thing in the world but it'd be doing what I absolutely love if I hit it big.
The newspaper article stated that you were interested in Physics and Engineering. You can certainly get a good education taking a ski area management oriented curriculum, but you might consider getting an engineering degree in mechanical, structural, electrical or whatever discipline of engineering that interests you, and then apply it towards resort type work. You can always work at resorts during vacation breaks to pick up practical experience and can be especially valuable to a favorite area if you come back year after year during your years of continuing education - you may find that the area management might support you with scholarships and or future employment opportunities! But, if you find that the resort business isn't for you after all, you still have an engineering degree that you can apply in different ways!
