Thanksgiving is Coming

Hey all,

I just wanted to check in and say hello again after what has been a very busy past week. Last weekend was the UNR Ski and Board Swap, now called Skiboom. It was bigger and better than ever! I didn’t get anything myself this year, but I definitely was eying all of the new and used gear. Over the past few years down here in Reno I’ve come up with some steals of deals on clothing and gear from the swap.

I did intervals this morning with Wyatt and Jeff Stein up in the hills of Rancho San Rafael. it looks like this week is going to be an intensity week leading up to the thanksgiving weekend. Sadly, I won’t be making it out to West Yellowstone this year. I’m heading home to Utah for a few days and will be hoping to get some skiing in as well as enter my local 5k turkey trot. Hope that these intervals this week open up the engine so that I can race fast.

Oh yeah, I’ve forgotten to keep up the tradition of telling you what I’m listening to. Right now it’s the new Feist album. Give this song a listen.


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.
