    Too bad the world will never get to see video about Travis Rice and Shane McConkey taking down massive lines together.

    It’s all been said. He inspired many, was always nice, funny, and passionate.
    His ski design with the Volant Spatula and K2 Pontoon was ground breaking for the designs that are used today.
