Skiers in Vermont start getting antsy for snow pretty early in the fall. For me, it’s once I start reaching for fleece jackets or blankets at night. One of the ways we get through this annual ordeal is to gather in theaters to watch ski movies. Hooting and hollering are sometimes involved; it’s all just part of our coping mechanism.
