High Country Stage :
What Were They Thinking? – A unique mixed media presentation sponsored by Sugarbush Resort
Ever look at some amazing footage of what one would call “Extreme” Skiers (or boarders) doing things on their boards that we look at and wonder... how’d they do that or, more likely, “WHAT WERE THEY THINKING” when they undertook that amazing run and what was going thru their mind as they careened down the mountain holding on – or so it seemed to us watching them – to, well, life itself! These questions will be answered by one of the true pioneers of Extreme, or what is now called Big Mountain Skiing – John Egan, 2016 Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame member and Sugarbush Chief Recreation Officer. Using actual footage of himself and his brother Dan Egan, as well as other top Skiers and Snowboarders John will try to answer the underlining question: WHAT WERE THEY THINKING and will follow each presentation with a question and answer segment.
