University of Colorado
Home to the largest snowboard club in the country, Boulder has a thriving shred scene in the heart of Colorado. It can also be one of the largest party schools in the country, just a warning. Ex-pro Pat Abramson heads things up for the CU Snowboard Team as coach, while the Boulder Freeride Club has more of a lax gathering and arranges trips anywhere from Jackson Hole to Innsbruck. Boulder’s strong academics speak for themselves and the town tends to curate a never-ending lineup of music acts. There’s night riding at Keystone and the ever close Echo Mountain so you can get laps in after dark. Keep your eyes out for the multi-mountain Epic Pass, it’s priced for the college boarder.
