A never-before-seen Shane McConkey film just dropped. Watch it. Now.

Ever since Shane McConkey died from a ski-BASE jumping accident in 2009, skiers around the world have watched his most legendary footage over, and over and over again. From goofy “Saucer Boy” appearances in Matchstick Productions movies to the tear-jerking, award-winning documentary McConkey, these visuals collectively serve as a way to remember the skiing legend as much as possible.

Today, a new film—comprised of three mini films—was added to the mix, providing further insight to McConkey’s life. Titled The Thrillogy, it comes from Mike Jaquet, a close college buddy of McConkey’s, and shows the late legend during his days as a University of Colorado student (soon-to-be-dropout). The footage was originally compiled for a CU journalism class in the early ’90s and has been kept a secret essentially ever since.

You can find The Thrillogy in its entirety, above, and a podcast about its creation—featuring Jaquet and Mike Powell of The Powell Movement—below. Also below is a button linking to the The Shane McConkey Foundation’s website, which distributes resources to a long list of incredible, ski-centric organizations.
