5th Annual Pain McShlonkey Classic at Squaw Valley

PMS2015_forWillie

This weekend marks the 5th Annual Pain McShlonkey Classic at Squaw Valley in honor and remembrance of a Squaw legend, Shane McConkey. For the extreme athlete who actually coined the term freeskiing, Shane and his alter ego ‘Saucer Boy’ (Pain McShlonkey) left an indelible mark on our local mountain and the modern ski industry as we know it.

In celebration of Shane’s wacky personality and creative mind, the Pain McShlonkey Classic is an on and off mountain event, where the world’s top winter athletes compete for the podium – on snowblades, of course!

The Hot Dog Downhill competition kicks off at 9am on Saturday, March 14, followed by a Snowblade Slalom Invitational; lots of drinks, grub and entertainment on the KT Sun Deck, and then an afternoon Costume Contest. Don’t forget to purchase your ticket for The Shane McConkey Legacy Gala, a legendary event in 1970’s NYC nightclub fashion–just the way Shane would like it.

Do you still need a room for the weekend? Stay just a hop, skip and jump from the event. Check out our rates HERE!
