Believe it or not, Portillo's website is advertising a ski clinic in August with Shane teaching.   

SKI WITH THE SUPERSTARS
August 15 – 22

For the sixth year in a row, Davenport MountainSport Inc. and Ski Portillo are proud to announce Ski with the Superstars, held August 15-22, 2009, at Ski Portillo. What could be better then a dream ski sports vacation to the Chilean Andes Mountains with some of the world’s most renowned freeskiers as your personal guides and coaches? The camp is open to any age and all participants should be expert skiers (able to ski all blacks). Participants will spend the week mastering the steeps and deeps of the Chilean Andes with top freeskiing champions Chris Anthony, Ingrid Backstrom, Chris Davenport, Mike Douglas and Shane McConkey. These athletes have starred in films by Warren Miller, Teton Gravity Research, and Matchstick Productions, as well as having graced the pages of SKI, Skiing and Powder magazines.

Anybody know if this contains a new "afterward" from the original movie? 

For those who have not seen "There's Something About McConkey" yet, it is highly recommended.  Besides the skiing, it is filled with all his funny skits.  It was released a long time ago and I was hoping they might have done a "part 2" if you will, for this release.

Tramdock just sent me an email with this wallpaper.  In case you don't know, this is a direct McConkey reference (getting banned at Vail for skiing moguls in a comp naked).

I saw that but I didn't get it, just thought it was a quirky marketing thing. Nice catch

Yes, but do you get free steak and cheese croissants for lunch????

(hopefully somebody from Chicago will see this and enjoy it, even though it's stupid)
