i didn't know Shane McConkey passed away. that sucks.
Outside magazine had a big article on him a couple of months back. His mom is a local around here and he had a lot of friends in PC. It is an inherint risk to what they do but it sure is sad when it happens.

sorry for getting off-topic but i think JT would approve if we say as few things about his good friend.

i used to make snowboard videos for a living back in the '90s. before it was cool to be a skier again. Shane McConkey was one of the guys who made that happen. He and his buddies like JT saved the ski industry. He died trying to save a friend. A true hero if you ask me.

You confuse me ... I don't understand what you are saying. Who died saving someone? I think you are confused. SC and his buddies did not save the ski industry.

You're right. Coombs died trying to get to his friend. i crossed them up. This whole thing is kinda unsettling to me. Foo, Chesser, Kelly, Coombs, McConkey, Lusk. I know there are more. I hope they are all having a blast together.

The reason i said he saved the ski industry is because it gave kids, who were heading towards snowboarding in a big way, something to get stoked on and to not be ashamed at putting skis on. There were a bunch of guys who can take credit for that but McConkey, a big mountain guy, was at the forefront of making skiing cool again.
