Shane McConkey started the International Free Skiing Association (IFSA) in 1996. The IFSA now has over 1000 members worldwide. Shane was the organization’s founder, president, and an athlete.
“The beauty of freeskiing competitions is that it brings together mogul skiers, racers, aerialists, and other specialized skiing disciplines and allows them to compete, without specific training, but rather on their whole skiing ability. The skiing camaraderie and culture in general experienced at these events is positive and is an inspiration to go out and make this thing work.” – Shane McConkey
