"We're incredibly proud of Glen on this well deserved honor," said Jan Burkholder, President of Screamer Hats. "Glen may very well be the hardest working guy in the business. He's been enthusiastically sharing his passion for skiing, and for life, for a long time so it's perfectly fitting to see him recognized in this way. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Glen and his family."
With Plake’s Down Home Tour he intends to rev up energy and his share his true appreciation of the sport by hanging out and teaching locals how to ski. He will show up to resorts large and small unannounced in order to avoid distracting publicity for a more intimate experience.

I'm grateful to Screamer, and to all of my sponsors, who throughout my career have played a role in allowing me to share skiing with so many people around the world. I'm looking forward to doing so for many more years to come.”
