Coming up on 15 years gone...

 It's been nearly 15 years since Shane McConkey's untimely death and his impact lives on at home base at Palisades Tahoe, the ski and base jumping world and beyond. Although it would be easy to make the case that he was one of the best, if not THE best ski athletes ever to hit the ski scene, it is Shanes irrepressible sense of self-deprecation and his ability to laugh at himself and the ego driven world of the professional skier that makes him my hero. Shane was the very poster boy of not taking your yourself too seriously and keeping your self-serving ego in check. Enter: Saucer Boy! 

Hope you'll check out: 

as his homage!
