Hi! I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but thank you ahead of time to anyone who replies. I just turned 17 and LOVE to ski. I'm really passionate about it. So here's the situation. I graduate next year, but have the option to graduate at the end of the first semester (winter break). So I'm thinking about starting college in an area where I can ski year round or almost year round and moving there during next winter.(I live in Northern Illinois now so we only have a few months of snow) I was wondering if anyone has suggestions on what to do or where to go. I also don't have all the money in the world (who does) so I'll have to keep that in mind to. Also does anyone have any suggestions for training off of the snow? Thanks again. Your help is GREATLY appreciated. Oh! And I'd be downhill skiing, not cross country.THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!
