By the time Jim Rippey made it to high school, his goals were clear, he was going to punt in the NFL. When football didn’t work for Jim, he found snowboarding. Within a couple years on a board, Jim was a sponsored rider with Burton, eventually had 7 pro models, and was the first to back flip a snowmobile. The interesting wrinkle is, one day in Alaska, Jim found god and everything changed for him. Fast forward 15 years and Jim is a man of god, a correctional officer living a completely different life.

Shane McConkey was the most influential skier of all time, but he was so much more than that.  Husband, father, funniest guy in the room, product visionary, goofball….there are so many words but none of them can truly describe who McConkey was.  On the podcast, I head to Squaw Valley for his signature snowlerblade event, take you through what that looks like, and talk to a variety of people to get some funny McConkey stories.  If you haven’t seen the movie “McConkey”, go watch it and then listen to the podcast.
