Great to be Back

It’s great to be back around the sierras racing and training. I spent much of the summer in NY as a camp counselor, and now that I’m back in school at UNR it’s good to be back at elevation. I’m also very excited to be skiing with the Far West Farm Team again this year. I think it is going to be a good year.

Mostly I just wanted to say hello again, but here are a few pictures from my training adventures over the past few weeks (including a ski on October 7th!)

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.
