It is a blizzard of aahhh's as you make your way higher and higher, deeper and deeper into the woods, all the way to the summit. The lodges, resorts and chalets in the ski town below look like a scattered set of Lincoln Logs.
High atop the mountain a dazzling light fills the cloudy alpine sky, jagged peaks linger in the distance and sharp drops wait for you below.
You are a skier, a snowboarder, drawn to the calling mountains every winter like the falling snow.
Carving down the mountain in rhythmic movements—fresh powder beneath your feet, wind whipping your lips chapped and cheeks rosy—a smile protrudes as you race past your brightly-colored compatriots, you are alive, exhausted but exhilarated, one more run and the day is over.
But not quite, suddenly everyone on the mountain in their Day-Glo gear is at the lodge, packed into wooden picnic tables surrounded by snow to enjoy cold beers, live saxophonists, shotskis, dancing on tables, spraying champagne, guitarists by the fire and late-night hot-tubbing—all whilst collectively praying for a powder day tomorrow.
