Most US Winter Athletes:

1. Westminster College - 23 (alpine skiing X7, cross-country skiing X2, freestyle skiing X4, nordic combined X2, ski jumping X1, snowboarding X5)
2. University of Wisconsin — 10 (1 curling, 9 hockey)
3. Dartmouth College — 9 (alpine skiing X3, biathlon X3, cross-country skiing X2, freestyle skiing)
4. University of Utah — 8 (alpine skiing, biathlon, bobsled, cross-country skiing, freestyle skiing
, ski jumping, speedskating X2)
5. University of Minnesota — 8 (all hockey)
6. University of Michigan — 6 (1 hockey, 5 figure skating)
7. University of North Dakota — 4 (all hockey)
8. Harvard University — 4 (all hockey)
9. Boston College — 4 (all hockey)
10. Alaska Pacific University — 4 (all cross-country skiing)

From the conference websites...
Big Ten - 43 (Minnesota 14, Wisconsin 12 , Michigan 8, Ohio State 4, Illinois 2 and Michigan State 2)
Ivy League - 24 (Dartmouth 12, Cornell 6, Brown 1, Yale 1)
PAC12 - 16 (Utah 10, Colorado 3, Oregon 1, USC 1)
BYU - 1 (Luge)

Special notes...
Alaska Pacific is near an Olympic training center for cross-country skiers.

Westminster College is a member of the NAIA Division I Frontier Conference but is applying for NCAA Division II after recieving an invite from the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. However, its Olympic athletes due to a partnership between the school and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA), which is based in nearby Park City Olympic training complex.

Commentary...

Obviously all Northern/Mountainous state (except USC) and all seem to fit, except BC seems to fit in more with the Big Ten than the ACC. I was suprises to not see any Stanford athletes included in the PAC12's release, and (though I could have missed it) I couldn't find any ND athletes either.

3 years passed and I'm still salty over the fact that Yuna Kim was robbed! Sotnikova should return the gold medal to Yuna. At least Yuna is more happy now and enjoys her retirement life.
