There should be a name for this—the emotional roller coaster skiers go on every fall. It’s a condition. How we get over excited by the first storm to drop six inches in October. How we check the forecast every single day. How we wait and question our lives and the very core of our existence with every sunny day that ensues in November. How the weeks turn to days, and then, finally, the storm door opens, the snow starts to fall, and everything finds its equilibrium. If this sounds familiar, Mike Douglas, Cody Townsend, Chris Rubens, and Salomon Freeski TV can relate.
