“A daredevil subject who will quickly endear himself even to viewers who’ve never heard his name.” – John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
“A comprehensive story of one of the most interesting lives lived.” – Tess Weaver, Freeskier.com
“If you’ve never seen McConkey tackle massive Alaskan peaks with just a handful of critically executed super-G turns or soar off thousand-foot Norwegian fjords into freefall, your understanding of what’s possible will be rewired.
