Angel Collinson Shows Off Our Alaska Basecamp

Basecamp is like TGR’s twist on Cribsexcept there a few more helicopters and professional athletes. Watch as Angel Collinson gives us the tour of their sweet set up in Palmer, Alaska.

This season, Colter didn’t have to go too far, linking up with his partner in crime Tim Durtschi and longtime friend Todd Ligare to explore the nooks and crannies around Jackson Hole.

At this point, it seems like Candide has skied on every conceivable surface: Snow, sand, water, air (debatably), and now super old Chinese bricks. It's kind of like urban skiing, except there's no snow. Talk about high-consequence... RELATED: Answered - How Did Candide Ski on that Wave? From a scientific perspective, it's hard to say if one can ski on plasma (the only state of matter we haven't seen Candide rip), but if anyone could do it, it would have to be the Flying Frenchman.
