If you are a fan of skiing, then surely you have heard of the legendary Glen Plake. And if you haven’t heard of him, then you have most definitely seen him. Glen is one of the most recognizable figures in the ski industry for many reasons, be it his in your face eccentric attitude, famous colorful mohawk, or one of the prominent ski figures in the “Hot Dogging” movement.
All the things that make up Glen’s skiing over the years has drawn him to Mammoth. Glen’s style has always been about pushing the limits. His revolutionary video parts and riding over the years showcase his technical big mountain lines in progressive and radical ways, making Mammoth the perfect place to call home.
If you see him on the slopes say “what’s up”, Glen Plake is the most memorable chairlift conversation you’ll ever have – his stoke for skiing and the Eastern Sierra is unmatched. There are even a few legendary stories floating around town about the guy. One most people have heard of is how Glen jumped out of the Chair 23 terminal into Dropout Chutes. The legend lives up to the hype when it comes to Glen Plake – a true ambassador for not only Mammoth, but the sport of skiing as a whole.
