Billy Dutton Uphill

Today I raced the Billy Dutton Uphill, and what a great way it was to end the season! But more importantly, it was #summitsunday!

The summits today were numerous.

1st I tandem skied with Johannes for the Billy Dutton Uphill Race

People were so impressed that they made a division specially for us. See the later photo, but spoiler, we won.

Then we summitted High Camp for the finish of the race


I guess Johannes technically crossed the line before I did

Then I tandem skied DOWN Mountain Run with Spencer (a video to come)


Summitted the chair in the Village for good measure

THEN, I went tele-skiing with Alex and Johannes at Northstar for N*’s last day. At this point my phone was dead, so there aren’t any photos, but it was equally as epic.
All in all, a pretty good day.
Music: I can’t get over this music video. Maybe it’s the Skeleton Dance Party at around 1-minute into the video.
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.
