What a lot of fun the Auburn Ski Club fun races were today?! It was a beautiful day with fast snow for the races. I was also glad to see all of the spandex clad nordies out in force.

In other news, I’ve recently completed my undergraduate degree at UNR and am looking forward to not having to have homework weighing on my mind for a little bit. I’ve been working on grad school applications and am on the job hunt. you know, that whole becoming an adult thing. I’m also going home to Utah for the holidays, but should be back for the races coming up (that is if we can get some real snow!).

That’s it for now,


Check out this live Mumford and Sons song. It’s real good

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.
