Over the weekend, during coverage of the Red Bull Cold Rush on NBC, the trailer for the upcoming Shane McConkey documentary debuted. The film, produced by MSP Films with the Red Bull Media House and due out some time in winter 2012/2013, is a biographical documentary charting Shane's life, from his volatile youth to the pinnacle of the skiing world to his premature death in a ski-BASEing accident two years ago today. Read more about the film at Outside online or from Megan Michelson at espn.com.
For those looking to learn more about Shane's life and the circumstances of his death, please check out "The Life and Death of Shane McConkey," the piece I wrote for Outside following his passing. I had the privilege of knowing shane peripherally--he helped teach me to BASE jump and jumped next to me during my first and only jump, off the Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls, Idaho--and am very much looking forward to seeing the full film.
