Icons: Glen Plake


It’s been nearly 15 years since Glen Plake last appeared in a Warren Miller movie, but he’s still got the moves – and the hair – that made him so famous in his heyday of hot-dogging. Regarded as a pioneer of extreme skiing and inducted into the Ski Hall of Fame, Plake has been turning heads since the late 80s. Today, the Lake Tahoe skier is a certified level 3 ski instructor with PSIA. He shows off his teaching style and perfects his pillow line-dropping technique in Canada’s Monashee Mountains with fellow PSIA members.
