Dan Egan is a Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame Member and living legend with a ton of stories to tell. In round two of his podcast, he tells the story that almost killed him, what it took to survive and how it changed his life forever.  There were 15 people that didn’t make it out and Dan tells the tale. We finish things off with my complaints about the Ski and Snowboard HOF that Dan is currently the face of.
