If you are a college kid who wants to be a part of a great institution that is successful in both academics and most athletics, Colorado State University is the school for you.

If you are a college kid who wants to be a part of a championship ski team, well, unfortunately you might have to settle with the University of Colorado at Boulder.


The CU Buffs took home the NCAA title for skiing after coming back from far behind, according to CJ Feehan of

“On the last of four days of racing in the NCAA Skiing Championships, the Colorado Buffaloes collected three podium results, demonstrated the largest final day rally in the history of the sport, and celebrated the school’s 25th overall national title.”

The CU Buffs are amidst a trying time for their athletic department; one that desires to excel in football, yet can’t manage to beat one of the Mountain West’s worst teams in Colorado State.

However, like many large institutions, they have found their success in their “smaller-income” programs. The Buffs made their second consecutive NCAA tournament appearance in men’s basketball, and their ski team has established its name in the forefront of skiing competitions.

“It was Colorado’s seventh national championship under Richard Rokos, who tied Bill Marolt’s mark. Marolt coached CU to seven consecutive titles from 1972-78 before leaving to coach the U.S. National Team.”
