I sort of analogize with duck hunting. You're sitting in a dark, dank, cold blind watching 20 mallards at 1,000 yards. Checking the wind, weaather, other hunters, water condition, decoy spread and shooting a duck isn't half as exciting as the anticipation of "are they coming in, will they miss my dekes, will they even notice, will they do by too high, will they flare at the last minute." SORT of like winter, will it ever get here, when, how much, good snow maybe - and then the 1st turn eases all the tension and built up anxiety and smooths out the winter into a pastel of white dry powder and great descents, dancing in the trees and barreling along without a care in the world.
