Chairlift Q/A: The Extreme Brothers
Vermont’s ‘Siamese Twins’ of skiing are getting inducted into the U.S. Ski Hall of Fame.
This April, in Stowe, John and Dan Egan will be the first brothers inducted into the U.S. Ski Hall of Fame. Known as the “Siamese twins of skiing” for their synchronized skiing, they often skied where world-wide news was breaking: at the Berlin Wall when it was being torn down, and in war fronts around the Middle East and former Soviet satellite countries.
The Egans starred in a dozen Warren Miller films and produced their own films under Egan Entertainment Network. John also did numerous first descents on terrain that, as Warren Miller said at the time, “no one thought could be skied.”
