TPM EPISODE 36: GLEN PLAKE

Glen Plake is the most famous skier ever, in my opinion.  While his skiing has always been top level, no matter what type of skiing he was doing at the time, he’ll always be remembered as the guy with the Mohhawk.   The guy who, along with Scot Schmidt, Mike Hattrup, and Greg Stump, created the overused word Extreme.  From arrests to celebrities to his thoughts on the state of skiing, here is the best of Glen Plake
