Rim Tour Pre-Ski

It’s been great skiing these past couple of weeks, and my mood reflects it. I’ve been really into it! Typically things in skiing wind down for me at this time of year. I like to transition to other sports like soccer, kayaking, and trail running, but this year has been anything but typical. I think that the dismal beginning to the ski year, and March being the month that it was, has boosted my stoke level for spring skiing.

Today I did the Rim Tour pre-ski. It was another beautiful day in Tahoe, and my skis felt good.  I hope for a day just as beautiful for the race this weekend. I’ll see you all there!



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.
