The Woman Who Stole Shane McConkey’s Heart
A heartfelt interview with Sherry McConkey talking about life and love with Shane
Red Bull Media House and Matchstick Productions continue to roll out interviews and behind the scenes footage as promo to the release of “McConkey” on Oct 5, 2013 in Squaw Valley, California. All of these videos just make me stop – press pause on life for a second – and appreciate the brilliance and light that Shane brought to everyone. Whether it was his wife Sherry (who is an executive producer on the film) or a fan who’d never met Shane in person, everyone felt it. No one should forget it. And we should all do our best to live it in honor of Shane.

Viva en Chile: Dawn Patrol
Getting it good
We awoke at 6:30 a.m., a surprising time considering the other night we went to bed at 5:30 a.m. A bucket of Piscola will do that to you. We dressed, making quick cups of tea, and checking the battery life of our beacons. We scrambled, but were out the door by 7 a.m. Powder skiing will do that that to you.

Taut Haunches and Burly Launches Part One: 2013 World Cup Lost in Slovenian Maze
Like many of the greatest ski racers, Tina Maze is the walking, talking, ice-trenching repudiation of authoritarian football coaches all across America. Dropping off the Slovenian team to embark on her own training program with the help of her mysterious 40-something Italian lover/trainer, Maze dominated the overall World Cup last winter—in individual event titles, podiums, earnings—all while skiing against one of the most stacked fields in history.

Drew Tabke's edit from South America
Sure, mountain biking is fun. So is climbing and surfing and backpacking. But after watching Drew Tabke make some late-July turns in fresh snow down in Chile, the truth hits hard. Nothing is as fun as skiing.

Parker White tells what it's really like to make ski films
Only a modest number of skiers know what’s it like to watch themselves on screen and ski for a living—Parker White is one of these riders. White nabbed “Best Male Performance” at last year’s International Freeskiing Film Festival (IF3) for his segment in Level 1’s Sunny, and he will be back for more in L1′s Partly Cloudy. Sharing his inner thoughts in this short edit, White discusses what it’s like to be featured in ski films. From freak-outs, to a sense of accomplishment, to the unglamorous side of filming segments, and skiing for a living, White divulges the life that most skiers dream of, but few actually experience.—Sarah Ward
