Still not much snow in Reno

As I heard updates from the Tahoe region about how much snow was falling this weekend I began to wonder why none of it had made it down to Reno. It was a strange weekend. We saw the clouds socked in on the mountains to the west, and figured it must move on eventually eastward to blanket the Biggest Little City in a white quiet clean snowstorm. Not the case. There was only a couple inches from this weekend’s snowstorm. I made the most I could out of it. Elias and I took out our rock skis to Rancho San Rafael  park and did a little free skiing on saturday. We were mostly skiing on grass, but it was still a very enjoyable experience. Regrettably, there are no photos from this session, but I do have a picture from the previous day’s bounding intervals in the foothills.

About Gus

My full name is Gustavo, though I go by Gus. I was a member of the UNR NCAA Ski Team from 2008-2010 and a founder of the UNR Winter Sports Club. I have been a Far West Farm Team member for 2 seasons so far and am looking forward to my third year. I’m working my way toward being a ski coach and english teacher, while still trying to be as fast as I can be. I love mountains and canyons and rivers. My favorite place to be outside of skiing is in the Grand Canyon, though I don’t get to go there as much as I’d like. I’ve started a collaborative project called #summitsunday this year.
