School is winding down

Finals week is coming up. I should be studying, but I find that I am making excuses to go skiing as often as I can. Today, instead of finishing up my Spanish homework online, I skied at TDXC in a perfect bluebird day. I did get a small amount of Spanish conversation on the trials, so I think that that counts, right?

I grabbed some video of Elias at ASC the other day and I thought I’d share it. It is a .mov file so you may have to open it with quicktime or something.  :)


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.
