Angel Collinson Shows Us Why Backcountry is Best

Sure, you could opt for a chair­lift, a snow­mo­bile, or a heli­copter (should you be so lucky)– but pro freeski­er Angel Collinson is here to remind us why there’s noth­ing more reward­ing than pow­der turns earned through self-pro­pelled hiking.

Back­coun­try enthu­si­asts know that British Colum­bia is a mec­ca of end­less pow­der, which is why Big Tree Media chose to pro­file Angel in Ter­race, British Colum­bia. Though Ter­race is a rel­a­tive­ly small town, you’ll under­stand why it was cho­sen once you see the area’s incred­i­ble ter­rain and breath­tak­ing scenery.

Most recent­ly seen in both Teton Grav­i­ty Research and Sher­pa Cin­e­mas’ lat­est ski flicks, Angel is one of the most pop­u­lar women in freeski­ing right now. With spon­sors like the North Face and Black Dia­mond back­ing her, it looks like she’ll be on the scene for a long time to come.
