Glen Plake
Glen Plake (born 9 September 1964) is an American Freestyle skier. Born in Livermore, California, he grew up in Lake Tahoe, skiing Heavenly Valley. He is known for his appearances in ski films such as Greg Stump's The Blizzard of Aahhhs, and for his trademark Mohawk hairstyle, often dyed blonde, purple or blue. Plake was a pioneer of extreme skiing in America. He is currently the host for the RSN program Reel Thrills. According to his official biography: "...it was his third-grade teacher who used a Möbius flip from the seminal '70s ski flick Outer Limits as a way of demonstrating math that turned his life. For Glen, there fell into place a connection between skiing and the wider world, an understanding that there were deeper forces beneath this sliding on snow. In that brief flash of insight, Plake knew that skiing held something greater for him." Glen Plake married his wife Kimberly in 1991. The Plakes now base their winters in Chamonix, France
