Source Weekly: How long have you been skiing at Mt. Bachelor?

Josh Suran: I've been skiing at Mt. Bachelor since I was about two years old. The second I was able to stand my dad put me in a pair of boots and pushed me down the hill. This has been home my whole life.

SW: Where did the inspiration come to start Josh Reports?

JS: I spent a couple years in Whitefish, Montana, and I was the snow reporter for the ski resort during one season. I kind of stumbled into that job and I loved doing it. When I moved back home in 2020, I noticed there was a lot of negativity going on in some local forums. I decided I would try making a positive ski report to make people smile. It kind of started as a joke, and then took off from there. Here I am over a year later still doing it.

SW: How did you wind up turning, "enjoy every day" into your brand?

JS: I've always been chasing the dream of doing something to make a positive impact in the world. I had originally started a YouTube channel called Enjoy Every Day, then somehow, I ended up with a clothing company called Enjoy Every Day. Now the goal is to try to keep blending Enjoy Every Day with Josh Reports to keep spreading that positive message.

SW: How do you make sure you enjoy every day? JS: I make sure to remember that even if I am having a tough time, I can get out to stop and smell the roses for a brief minute each day. I think the heart of the motto is not necessarily the idea of enjoying every single moment of every day, but remembering that there is something to enjoy in every day.
