University of Colorado at Boulder has been known to showcase their supreme skiing abilities on the mountain as they have won 18 of their 24 NCAA championships in skiing alone. The Pac-12 Conference member has around 1,500 students of their almost 32,000-person student body participating in 34 intercollegiate club sports annually.
CU Boulder is so close to so many reputable and quality mountains that it makes sense they dominate the skiing scene. If you are a die hard skier/rider then you need to check out the Epic Pass, which for $689 gets you unlimited access to: Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood, Canyons, Afton Alps, Mt. Brighton, Arapahoe Basin, and Eldora. An added bonus is that you’ll also receive five FREE days of international shredding at Verbier, Switzerland and Arlberg, Austria. With Eldora just a 45 min drive away and mountains like Vail, Beaver Creek, and Breckenridge around 2 hours away, CU Boulder offers a great way for snow junkies to get their education and hit fresh powder at the same time.
