"I know some people are against it, saying I'm selling out, but I hope the improvements over the next few years change their minds. I started building this setup to have fun with my friends and that's one thing I don't plan on ever changing"
Angel Collinson was born into the ski world. She grew up in Snowbird employee housing, where she honed her race skills enough to barely not make the US Ski Team. With racing over, college and big mountain skiing competitions took over. Skiing won. Over the years there have been a lot of women who have pushed the envelope on snow but Angel transcends gender….she’s just a bad ass skier who charges harder than anyone these past few years…guy or girl. Her story is not what you expect…..
