Reading your post brought back so many memories for me. You might not remember me but I’m from Winona, MN and skied at NMU during the late 1980’s. I had exactly the same experience you are having now during my final years at NMU. Only advice I can provide is do exactly what you are doing. Step back the pressure, stay positive and probably most important – find yourself beyond skiing. You seem to have a really well rounded life.

Cheers and enjoy the ride. Go Wildcats!!
