    his saucer boy antics at squaw valley ending w/ him (a dummy) being tossed out of the tram always had me laughing.
    he brought a sense of humor to skiing that i never had seen before. and, he could back it up w/ his skills; both airborne and on the snow.

    gonna have 2 crank up the VCR and play those "old-school" video tapes 2nite.

    Shane, u will be missed, but not forgotten.
    when not on the snow what else do i do...

    my dreams of seeing an ancient Saucerboy push the limits and a geriatric Shane continue to inovate long after all the marbles are gone will not be fufilled.
    This is a giant loss, positive vibes to all his closest.
    May the spirit live on.

    Apart from his heroics, he was just such a nice guy.

    This finally put me over the edge and into tears.
    Same here (as a father of two little girls it is pretty tough to look at that pic).

    R.I.P and prayers for the family.

    Enormous sadness for the skiing community. This is HUGE!

    All day tomorrow (being my last at a local hill) with a slush cup and throwing down where ever I can... will be dedicated to Pain McShlonkey.
    Jak and Jil skinned up the hill to rip some epic lines...
    Jak cruised down throwing a huge mute 3...
    Followed by Jil with a 9.

    Ambition is like a frog sitting on a Venus Flytrap. The flytrap can bite and bite, but it won't bother the frog because it only has little tiny plant teeth. But some other stuff could happen and it could be like ambition.

    This breaks my heart. Shane made people love skiing. He made people love life. He changed all of us, even if we didn't know him personally. He was a man who lived life large, and those who loved him knew that and embraced him wholeheartedly.

    My thoughts go out to Shane's wife, his daughter, the rest of his family and his wide world of friends. Peace be with you all.

    Celebrating a true mentor to us all. He didn't take him self seriously, nailed countless crazy ass lines, changed our sport forever, made us all laugh. I'm sure he'd want smiles in his memory. Though I never knew him, I thought about him during several great turns today...

    i would propose that quoting or even posting any more about mebeeyatch's opinions takes this thread in a direction that it doesn't need. Not that he isn't entitled to his opinion, i'll shout the loudest that he is, even if i don't agree with it, but this thread is just simply the wrong place. just 2 cents.

    I'll be raising a glass to Shane tonight at 7pm Rocky Mtn Time, and invite others to join in the toast...

    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    I'm still in disbelief ...

    Never met the man but I'm very sad to hear of his passing ... he was a true hero in a world where hero's are hard to find.

    My condolences to his family and friends.

    RIP Shane you lived life to the fullest

    I just dusted off the VCR and am watching The Tribe and Fetish. Classic McConkey.
    My condolences to his family and those that knew him. He was an amazing skier and will truly be missed.

    I heard from a friend last night at around 11. He called me and said simply "Shane Died". I got off the phone and spent the rest of the evening in a state of relative disbelief. I had just mounted up a set of Volkl Chopsticks and would me making my first turn on reverse camber skis today.

    I went out at around noon today and shredded the shit out of the New England slush on a set of skis that had no purpose being there, knowing the whole time that the only reason I looked like a goof to all the massholes, was because of Shane's reverse camber dream and the inovation he brought to the sport.

    Shane, you WILL be missed and you DID revolutionize the sport in a way you will never understand. This shot of Beam is for you.

    Deepest condolences to his family.

    The ski world is a much better place because of his contribution.

    He will be missed.

    Terrible news

    It's a very sad day. Not very many ways to describe it. We should all support his family in any way we are able. Lots or little, doesn't matter just what you can.

    Wow, I am so sorry for the family. I meet shane at SIA years ago. I was nobody in the crowd, but he made time to take pictures with us and talk with us like we were just as important as a sponsor that needed to talk with him. I think this link needs it own thread so it's not lost in all these pages.
