My Name is Sylvester Garrett Gomez II. I’m 29 years old and have a wide range of interests. However, let’s go back...
I grew up in two small towns in Colorado and New Mexico, miles away from Wolf Creek Ski Area. At age 10, the local school districts took students to the mountain to learn three different types of skiing, Alpine, Nordic, Big Mountain. I fell in love with Alpine and the fresh powder of big mountain. When I left for college I decided to put my dream of racing to the side and extend my horizons to new adventures and activities. Living in Colorado, there was no better way to explore the great outdoors. The years were filled with recreational skiing, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, sky diving, sailing, parasailing, snowmobiling, zip lining, and anything that got me outdoors to explore this amazing world. Finally realizing where my heart was, I decided to train for GS and SG competitions. This didn’t come simple it came with a price; dedication and hard work the whole year. I soon graduated with a degree in Chemisty and neuromuscular therapy. However, it didn’t end there! I had to maintain training and look for a job to support my crazy dream. A month after graduation, I finally found my dream job! I was able to work and ski. The adventure is never ending and my passion for skiing only grows.
I’m raising funds to fund my upcoming season.
There are expenses that add up quickly in ski racing. I need your help in raising funds to pay for extra expense. The funds raised will go to equipment, training, racer fees, travel, and food while I’m on the road.
With your donations I’ll be able to proceed to the next level and strive to be the best that I can be. It wasn’t easy getting here and the journey forward looks bright with a lot of dark spots. As I grow I can only be thankful for the opportunity and the gratitude everyone has shown me!
Join my team and help me spread my wings!
