I heart Mammoth

Hi all,

I had a great time out in Mammoth with the Far West contingent of skiers. We stayed a night in the high school gym, and got up the next morning to race the 20k classic race. The course was flat so there was a lot of double pole and kick double pole. Mostly, I wanted to post something today thanking all of the people who made the trip possible, and say how much fun it was to be around a group of skiers again in a team atmosphere. It reminded me a lot of my own experiences on ski trips as a junior. It really hasn’t been that long, but I’d almost forgotten what a post-meal pre-race meeting felt like.

here is a picture of the accommodations

and for music, here is a song by my favorite Beatle

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.
