Pain McShlonkey Classic… The Video!

On March 27, The Pain McShlonkey Classic—the most awesomest competition ever held—went down at Squaw Valley, Calif. Following the intense boogie down at the “after party,” the most decorated snowbladers in the world took on Squaw’s legendary terrain like never before. Hideous wigs, 80’s one pieces, unnecessary climbing harnesses, ridiculous amounts of Red Bull, and partial nudity helped competitors get the edge in the battle for the coveted golden saucer during the Small Mountain Invitational and Chinese Downhill. All proceeds went to the newly formed Shane McConkey Foundation.Thank you Shane, that was super fun… For more beta or to make your donation, check out the organization online at
