JACKSON, Wyo. (Nov. 4, 2015) Today, leading action sports media company and content curator, Teton Gravity Research (TGR), announces the availability of their newest action sports film on DVD, "Paradise Waits". To celebrate the release, TGR is sharing the entirety of Collinson's incredible segment.
Angel Collinson, the female skier who was honored this September with the award for the Best Female Freeride Performance at the International Freeskiing Film Festival (iF3), linked together a segment that is being called one of the the best female skiing segments ever. Collinson is the first female to have the coveted closing segment in a major ski film. Last year she opened TGR's film "Almost Ablaze" and took home the Best Female Performance from Powder Magazine. "This year, she closed the film and emphatically put to rest any speculation that last year was a fluke", said Powder Magazine's Editor at Large, Matt Hansen. "Her fast aggressive style certainly continues that long-held TGR tradition."
Collinson capitalizes on the some of the best conditions Alaska has seen in recent history in a largely unexplored mountain range. TGR Director Todd Jones speaks on her performance: “In twenty years of filming skiing I have never seen a female skier charge Alaska the way Angel did this year. It is truly mind blowing."
"Paradise Waits" follows cold fronts, winter weather, and a cast of world-class athletes as they seek paradise across the globe. A broad range of ski and snowboard disciplines are highlighted, ranging from 50-degree pitches, deep in Alaska, to the snow-buried urban landscapes of Boston, Massachusetts, all captured with remarkably stunning clarity.

It was with great sadness on this day in 2014 that the world learned of the deaths of J.P. Auclair, Andreas Fransson, and Liz Daley, three individuals that all held different, but vital, places in the greater snow community. Mid-day yesterday, we began to hear news that J.P. and Andreas were in the Patagonian backcountry, toeing the Argentinean and Chilean borders, for their first film project together, which they were working on with the help of two Swedish partners, Bjarne Salen and Daniel
The ski industry has lost a legend. Last Thursday, Mike Wiegele Heli Skiing announced that their founder Mike Wiegele had passed away at the age of 82. For the last 50 years, Wiegele’s name was synonymous with the best feeling in the world: skiing bottomless, untouched powder. In 1970 this humble farm boy from Austria offered his first-ever heli guided ski trip in Valemont, BC. It was a wild and revolutionary idea, but Wiegele was certain that it would take hold despite the lack of initial
Carving turns on powerful 100mm underfoot skis is a pleasure - Atomic's brand-new Maverick 100Ti is our tool of choice. | Atomic photo. There’s a funny thing about skis: the ones with the most exciting, out-of this world design are often the ones we get to ride the least. Let’s be real, a powder day at a ski area doesn’t last long. If you’re lucky, you get a few morning runs of blissfully deep riding before the snow turns to chopped up crud, or even gets scraped off a hard underlying
