read this article, it is worth the 10 minutes....this is why McConkey is and always will be my favorite skier. This guy is nuts.
lil quote from him in case your too lazy to read the article ~ I'm interested in doing things an interesting way,' McConkey says, prior to the Bella Coola trip. 'When I watch ski movies, I don't give a shit about who has the coolest style or who has the most technical progression. I like seeing Jon McMurray do backflips into hedges or crazy stuff on totally bizarre jibs. People don't respect the circus-stunt stuff. That's a common way to think. But, shit. I'll take balls over style any day of the week.'
