The Invasion Has Begun









There are several of the nation’s fastest skiers rolling into town and checking out the trails at Royal Gorge and Auburn Ski Club for the Super Tour Finals. It’s really exciting to see and be a part of, so get out there and enjoy it- and make a new friend or two (turns out, nordic skiers are pretty fun people to be around.)

After skiing at ASC this morning I tried to teach myself a little bit about long-boarding in the parking lot. I’m just learning, but I’ve found the more I play the part of the laid-back California skater dude, the easier the balance is. I was beginning to think myself pretty “steezy“, but then I saw the first 40 seconds of this video.

Music: I’m joining the Alt-J team. I like his delivery (strange, but unique and refreshing).

Peace out guys,



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.
