Shane is dead

Quote:
Extreme skier Shane McConkey, who lived and trained near Lake Tahoe, was killed jumping off a cliff with a parachute while filming a movie in Italy. He was 39.

"Skiing today owes Shane more than it probably knows," LaPlante told the Reno Gazette-Journal. "He taught the industry how to have fun by pushing and redefining the limits."
