Nick Schley represented the Western’s Mountain Sports Endurance Ski team this past weekend at the New Mexico Cup. The New Mexico Cup is a two race series including the Santa Fe Fireball held at Santa Fe Ski resort last Saturday, and the Rio Hondo Rando Raid at Taos Ski Valley last Sunday. Schley skied well on both days taking home two fifth place finishes and the overall fifth place combined spot for the race division. It was Nick’s first time skiing in New Mexico, and he loved the scene, his favorite part of the weekend was “taking in the epic views on top of Taos while racing on Sunday, and skiing slightly out of control on light and skinny randonne gear.”
Nick would like to thank Jon Brown of Team GO- CB for all of the help getting him to New Mexico for the races and the Mueller Family for the “stellar” accommodations on Saturday night in Taos. Nick and Matt Clark, fellow Mountain Sports team member are looking forward to racing at home next weekend in the 20+ mile Gothic Mountain Tour.
