Tahoe XC

Tahoe XC is a lot of fun. I skied up there for the first time this year, and it will certainly not be my last. I’ve been there before for The Great Race, but this was the first time I’d been there for training purposes and got to see a lot more of the trail system. I can’t wait for The Rim Tour tomorrow. Let’s hope for easy waxing

now for the best part: Music. I’ve been a huge fan of Take Away Shows from LaBlogotheque since I was in high school. This song was recently played on a car commercial and has gotten some radio exposure in the last couple years: 1901

If you’ve got time to waste on live performances from hipster-indie bands, go ahead and spend it on http://www.blogotheque.net/

Also, I’m super excited that the new The Decemberists’ album “The King Is Dead” is finally out. I’m listening to it as I blog!

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.
