Launching off a 20 foot cliff into 4 ft of powder is something we look forward to all year; something worth living for...like that trip to the tropics with perfect head high barrels.
I've done a lot of skiing over the years. Agreed, it's fun although I don't feel quite as passionately about the cold powder as you do, but sounds like you love that element which is cool.

Living / working in heavy snow & bitter cold on a daily basis are a long way from playing in it; the former being anathema to me. Just sayin'...
