So as i'm planning on moving to Colorado for college in a few years. I'm still deciding on where to live. I would want to live in Summit county because of the closeness to major ski resorts but I have some questions. What are the main ski resorts that people on the front range go to on weekends?. Because I'v heard they get very busy, and is it even that bad?. Or would I be better off living somewhere like Leadville and going to ski cooper to avoid the crowds?

Any imput is appreciated!

What does skiing and snowboarding have to do with pursuing a college education and selecting an appropriate higher institution of learning? I would like to hear this answer because I see many of these posts on this forum--it just stuns me that people have these well thought out ideas. Tell me the colleges in Summit County and the academic fields that interest you. Please just educate this older man on this concept of "college" education.

Yes are you getting an education or are you being a ski bum in an expensive ski town?

All of the summit county resorts are very busy on weekends.

Saying that you want to move in a few years for college and judging by the number in your handle, 14, let me guess, you are 14 years old or there abouts?

At that age you have no concept of time or money. How much time it takes to accomplish certain tasks, such as studying in college, traveling to college, working to support yourself, etc. Or how much money it takes to live in an expensive ski town, how much college costs, etc.

I'd focus on getting your education and you can always ski on weekends when you have the chance.
