I'm into Snowboarding and Mountain Biking. Bellingham, WA has Mount Baker nearby, and good biking at Galbraith and Snakeonia, Lake Tahoe has world class snowboarding, and Great Mountain Biking at Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, and the Flume to name a few, while Salt Lake City also has great snowboarding at Park City and great biking can be found 4 hours away by car at Moab. Where should I move to after graduation? I'll be a Pharmacist so getting a good job won't be difficult.
Is ice skating good exercise or a way to burn calories? Even if you are a beginner?
I live in Salt Lake, and answered a question similar to this in great detail not too long ago. The link is below. The person was comparing some of the same places, including the west coast and Utah. My answers are all based on winter riding, not mountain biking, but I can tell you that people mountain bike all year long here. Either in the benches of the Wasatch or if they have snow then further south, or yes, Moab.
I would encourage you to take a month off after graduation, and take a trip around. See how you like some of those places. Of course, just a few days doesn't really do it, but it would give you a better feel for the place and the people.
Utah does have some problems, especially if you plan on raising kids here. I have two daughters, and we may move if the Mormon culture starts affecting them in a negative way. The riding is the best in the US though (except for Jackson Hole), that I can promise you. I've skied nearly everywhere of mention...and Alta/Snowbird are standouts. Of course, as a snowboarder, you can't ride at Alta, but Snowbird is 10x the mountain Park City is. The only reason the Olympics weren't held there is because it is a dead-end road, and the organizers feared safety issues if they needed to move a lot of people down the canyon quickly.

What is the meaning of curling?
Salt Lake City; if they are good enough to host the Olympics, then they are good enough for a snowboarder like you
What's the best site to meet other snowboarders? I want to get in touch with GIRLS & guys who love to ride.
I don't recommend Lake Tahoe. It's become a rich, snobby area run by money and speedboats.
