Bogus Skiing

Been skiing at the home course, Bogus Basin, in Boise, Idaho over xmas break with family and old friends from my junior days. great snow right now, especially compared to last year when snow at Bogus Basin was just that – bogus (it didn’t open until January last year). Bogus also has the only solar-powered LED trail lighting system in the US! (see picture) It gets dark kinda early in December up here at the 43rd parallel, in Idaho, the 43rd state. So having a lighted trail system is pretty swell.

Looking forward to a good “Bogus Challenge” 6km skate mass start tomorrow. Gotta take down the master blasters and maybe even win a water bottle or bar of ski wax. Just like old times. Plus, the entry fee is only like $5, and it goes to my old junior ski team, the Bogus Basin Nordic Team.

Happy New Year

Hi. I live in Reno, NV and just completed my masters degree in hydrology at the UNR graduate school. I competed in three NCAA skiing championships for Colby College from 2008 to 2011, where I majored in geology. Originally from Boise, Idaho, I’m pumped to be skiing and racing in the Sierras. I like mountain biking, running, eating salmon, walking on my hands, dumpster-diving, and playing guitar.
