Born and raised in the great Northern Catskills, Gus Shuster is a cross-country runner and a skier for the Hunter Mountain Freestyle A-Team at Hunter Mountain, New York. An up-and-coming skier on the East Coast circuit, Gus suffered a life-altering injury when he landed on his back during a practice run in his second competition of the 2012-2013 season. The accident resulted in a teardrop fracture to C5 with an epidural hematoma in his C7 and T1 vertebrae. Through hard work in his physical therapy Gus plans on making a full recovery and ultimately making it to the Freestyle Nationals next season.
