Motto: You only regret the things you didn't do.
Are you involved in anything besides skiing(i.e. career, nonprofit, other sport, etc.)? I'm currently in my last year of high school, let's see what comes next... Other than that, I love to wakeboard, it's a good alternative to skiing when the snow is gone. I also like to run and bike to stay in shape!
