VAIL, Colo. — Legendary skier and former Vail, Colo. resident Shane McConkey died Thursday in a ski accident in Italy.
He was 39.
McConkey was attempting a cliff jump in the Italian Dolomites in which he was to release his skis and then use a “wing suit” and parachute to fly through the air, according to news reports. McConkey was a pioneer of these so-called ski BASE jumps.
One of the skis did not release, and McConkey was unable to deploy his parachute, ESPN reported.
McConkey starred in numerous ski films as both a big-mountain skier and a ski-BASE jumper. He also won several national and international skiing competitions, including the X Games and World Extreme Skiing Championships.
