This is what I came home to in Utah. Now that’s my idea of a graduation present. I have such a weakness for popcorn. I’d say about 80 percent of why I watch movies is an excuse to eat popcorn. I thought about making this a sports nutrition blog post, but it’d be a lie. I just wanted to tell you how stoked I am on the food. I ate the whole bag in one sitting and now I have none left for the rest of the holiday. I know what I’m asking Santa for… a refill.

happy holidays,


Today I have a random find for music. I think it’s a Chipotle add, but I love this rendition as well the original Coldplay song. Check out the Zidane video with the coldplay backtrack. It’s a real good pairing of the beauty of sports and music.

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.
