Gil Viesturs

We met Gil by way of Los Barriles down in Baja. He was doing a gap year and ended up spending two months down there with Puente Guidance's, Chris Mathias. Gil is a Sun Valley kid who knows how to rip on skis, flip on sand, and travel with no expectations except that he's going to learn a thing or two along the way. Gil is the man.
