RachyI don't know.....
Glenn Plake. He's who McConkey looked up to. He just happens to still be alive (thankfully cause he's rad as shit). I think it's a generational thing though... Ski media wasn't the same as it was in the 80's/90's when he really took off. McConkey became as popular as he did in part to all of the technology that was coming out during his prime and the increasing popularity of ski movies.
Watch some Greg Stump films... you will understand.
Yeah ive seen some of those boys abdolutely ripping it, scot Schmidt etc... but i agree there ay, mcConkey was pretty much in the ideal spot in time for becoming who he was.
Respect to the legend himself.
