Sugar Rush

Hey guys,

I just wanted to give a quick thank you to the staff at Royal Gorge(ous) for putting on a very fun and fast race today at the Sugar Rush. The course was “flying” fast, the tracks were firm, and the sun was out. It felt like what spring skiing should be in California: lots of snow, lots of sun. The skiing in the Van Norden Meadow remains excellent, especially in the morning.


Here’s a picture from my inverted #summitsunday following the race.













Music: I love the drums and transitions in this one: The Dø ‘The Wicked and the Blind’

Also, since it’s St. Patty’s Day



Be Brave. Live.


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.
