Best known as the Egan Brothers, Dan and John Egan were first spotted by Warren Miller crews at Sugarbush, VT, in 1978. They went on to star in over a dozen Warren Miller films, together and individually, showing that ski bums could make good. In fact, a 1990 clip from Steeper and Deeper of the brothers skiing a huge piece of cornice that broke under Dan, forcing John to make an impossible turn back to solid ground and effectively cheat death, became one of the most-used Warren Miller clips of all time.
