NBC’s Rock Center with Brian Williams explores the recent losses of high level Tahoe skiers. The program contains interviews with Sherry McConkey, JT Holmes and Robb Gaffney.
Skiing-blog.com has completed it’s new ski film called SIERROIN. The movie features North Tahoe locals getting after the best ski season in recent history. Grant Kaye contributed some great timelapse photography to the project and Squaw residents JT Holmes and Aaron McGovern graciously donated base jumping and POV footage.
Shane McConkey loved Bridge Day. Bridge Day gives base jumpers the chance to huck themselves in whatever fashion they can imagine…legally. Held on the New River Gorge Bridge in West Virginia, Bridge Day simply rocks. Here’s a stellar edit from Tim Dutton that features JT Holmes standing in as a member of the Red Bull Air Force and jumping the last of Shane’s unused parachute pack jobs at Bridge Day.
