Hi! I'll be glad to help you with this issue.
I can imagine how confusing this situation must be for you. You are clearly eager to try to make this relationship happen. And he appears to want to be young, enjoy his ski season and go from there.
And this is actually the key to my answer to you that you need to consider and think about. The two of you are young and you need to resist trying to move things too fast. He wanted to feel free on his ski trip and you need to let that happen.
Therefore, you want to keep communication between the two of you light while he's away. That means light in content. You want to keep communication going, but not get into deep feelings. That should wait until he's back and the two of you have seen each other in person again and you can have a talk in person. This is the best way to not get into misunderstandings, which can happen too easily when you are so far away.
Okay, I wish you the very best!
