When Derrick Taylor; avid skier, professional Gnarologist, and Minnesota native, heard that McConkey was coming to Minneapolis his first thought was “How can I help?!” His brainchild: A Ski Day to Remember. Taylor has created a full day event that leads up to the screening of the film at the Pantages Theatre. The plan includes a “Goof Troop” bus ride to Buck Hill, extreme shred fest, a fundraiser, a PoorHouse Happy Hour, the sickest Raffle of all time, and a full day of hyping the documentary. Proceeds from A Ski Day to Remember go to The Shane McConkey Foundation. Not only is McConkey the MUST SEE FILM OF THE YEAR but A Ski Day to Remember is THE MUST ATTEND EVENT OF THE WINTER!!! The amount of hi5′s on Novemeber 8, 2013 will be as endless as Shane’s passion for life. Be there or be square!

Forget about the prophecies of Nostradamus, the late Tom Sims hits the nail on the head talking about snowboarding with “It’ll become the main stream winter sport for teenagers and guys in their 20′s..”
Tony Hawk’s Loop of Death
Tony Hawk brushed the dust off of the ole’ Loop of Death and let some young guns give it a shot. Sure there was a couple of legends ripping through too, but it looks like old age might be slowing them down a little.
Independent Trucks’ very own Arron “Jaws” Homoki and Josh Stafford thankfully escaped death and rode it out.
Hitting hips is pretty fun to do and it looks like the Airblaster boys enjoyed ripping through Montana’s Lost Trail Resort. More to come.
