Unofficial Networks: To ‘Blade or Not to Blade’?

A transient who has hung in the balance between winters at Alta and summers aboard a commercial seine boat in Alaska, Mario was recruited to Sego after a 2016 short film showed his affinity for and talent on a pair of ‘blades. That film propelled him both into the hands of a ski blade benefactor and into the starting list for the Pain McShlonkey Invitational, an event that celebrates the legacy of a great man who once lived among us—Shane McConkey—and the journey of self that comes from traversing this world on a pair of shorter skis. Mario won the showcase contest of that event, the Chinese Downhill, on a pair of Sego’s first pair of blades, the Rossignars.
