Once again I was one of those who nominated Shane for NASJA's Lifetime Achievement Award, and once again he did not win. :evil: :evil: :evil:

Nice job, Patrick.

Thanks.

Nice job Tony, fortunately he was honored at the US Ski Hall of Fame. Canada Ski Hall and Museum are facing under challenges now, so we'll see afterward. I'll try post something in the next few weeks.

Greg and company at FIS celebrated Shane Day.

That's an interesting way to celebrate Shane Day. Hard core to do it in powder, but it might catch on when March 26 is a sunny day. :lol:
