Yesterday the ski industry lost one of best: Shane McConkey. McConkey seemed to know how to make every laugh, he was an amazing person, skier, father, icon, inspiration, innovator, saucer boy and the list goes on. My heart goes out to his wife and daughter. Yesterday, while in Italy he left everyone while doing his favorite thing (things): skiing and base jumping. He sure did live life to the fullest. On the MSP athlete profile website he says "Happiness is a thing called...A Heli budget". Shane will never be forgotten, his legend will always live on.
