Angel Collinson

Freeride

The daughter of the ski patrol director at Utah’s Snowbird ski area, Angel Collinson grew up in employee housing at the base of the mountain, becoming a skier not long after she learned to walk. As kids, she and her parents and her younger brother, fellow pro skier Johnny Collinson, would spend summers living out of their family’s van and climbing peaks all over the western United States.

An elite ski racer through her teens, Collinson gave up racing at age 19 and started entering big-mountain freeskiing contests, all while studying environmental law at the University of Utah. In her first year on the Freeskiing World Tour, in 2010, she won the overall title as a rookie, which she claimed again the following year. By 2013, she’d transitioned to filming, with a breakout part in Teton Gravity Research’s annual ski movie. Now a regular star athlete in TGR’s films, Collinson’s claimed many awards for her film parts, including become the first female in history to win Best Line at the Powder Video Awards for the footage of her slashing a steep spine in Alaska.

Confession
2. What do you use this ski for?
Big Mountain, fast hard charging riding
3. Why do you like this ski?
It's stable, fast, wide enough to cruise on powder but versatile and mobile enough to ski really well when conditions are variable, hard, or bumpy.
4. Why do you like being a part of the Völkl team?
It's an honor to be a part of a team that has so many heavy hitters getting to do team trips with some of the best riders from all different continents is probably my favorite part.

Since 2016
