Shane McConkey was one of the most innovative skiers to ever walk this Earth.
It turns out that he also applied his creativity to more mundane parts of life.
Sherry McConkey, Shane’s widow, shared a video to Instagram of her clearing snow from her deck.
Pay attention to the side railings of the deck. Each is actually a swinging gate that makes pushing snow off much easier. Brilliant!
Every home in the mountains needs these on their deck. It’s infinitely easier to push snow straight off rather than having to lift it over a railing.
Leave it to Shane McConkey to think of something so simple yet genius.
