Exploring the origins of Saucerboy, McConkey’s “drunk, awesome twin”
During a 1997 trip to Valdez, AK, Shane McConkey suffered a torn ACL, but rather than spend his time on the couch, he gave birth to the whiskey-loving, sponsor-pleasing godfather of snowlerblading, Saucerboy. McConkey’s character quickly rose to cult status in the ski world, and, much like the man who created him, his legacy will live on for eternity.
From redbull on YouTube:
“Who was Saucerboy? Where did he come from? And how did his popularity soar to cult proportions? Today Saucerboy is known as the alter ego that Shane McConkey and friends created to poke fun at everyone who took themselves too seriously. This is his story.”
