Sierra Nevada University Reviews
If you're not passionate about snow sports, please take advantage of your college years by going to a school that's going to push you, socially and academically so you learn about your field and are set up for success.however If you are passionate about snow sports, you're going to have the time of your life regardless of how the school is because you'll be busy and theres nothing wrong with that if its your thing.
