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.

Well, it’s a magical time of year again. Sticky spring snow is being plastered to the sides of the mountains high above Chamonix, France just in time for the Aiguille Du Midi tram to re-open after a lengthy COVID hiatus. Of course, that means the locals are absolutely frothing to get after it, and that’s just what Tof Henry and Seth Morrison did on one of the biggest lines of them all: the Aiguille Du Midi’s Mallory Route. More of a climbing route than a ski line, it comes into rare condition
Kai Jones’ progression in big mountain skiing isn’t slowing down, with the young gun spending the better part of the winter stacking clips in Jackson and Montana for the upcoming TGR film. To cap off the season, he just pulled off a descent that he’s been dreaming of for his entire life: skiing off the summit of the Grand Teton. Inspired by generations of legendary skiers in Jackson Hole, Kai teamed up with his close friend and mentor Tim Durtschi, as well as Jackson Hole Mountain Guides'
Truth be told, we’ve gotta give ski resorts in North America A TON of credit for the season they managed to pull off this year, despite all kinds of challenges like COVID outbreaks, travel restrictions, crowding, and inconsistent snowfall. Despite the whole world not feeling very normal, skiing at least felt like an escape from it all. Well, even though they had a great run, Snowbird (one of the last resorts open in the country) was forced to cut their season short a few weeks early because
