“I was a big fan of Shane and will cherish the times we got to ski together with even though I was humbled every time. He was the best I will miss him. This leaves a big void.”

Jonny Moseley


“I was high school roomates with Shane at Burke Mountain Academy.  I have known him since he was 15 and he has not changed a bit. i would go years without seeing him in person and always be amazed at how he was the same humble person, just looking to create fun wherever he was and he always succeeded. I will miss watching him innovate every sport he touched. my tears are for his family….”

Erik Schlopy


Shane was one of the first guys I met on my first trip to the US, it was during the 1999 US open and he helped me and Henke W out with everything and I remember how stoked we where that our idol was helping us to register for the event and giving us tips on tricks, he was and will always be a great inspiration for all skiers!
