How Angel Collinson Returned From a Torn ACL to Slay Alaskan Lines

There are aren't many skiers walking this Earth–male or female–with the talent, moxie and cajones that Angel Collinson has. There's a reason she's the first and only woman to win Powder's Line of the Year award. She tackles Alaskan lines that most of her contemporaries would balk at, and does it all with an omnipresent smile on her face. 

But, even when you're one of the best big-mountain skiers on the planet, mistakes happen. And unfortunately, when you're on near-vertical Alaskan spines, the consequences for those mistakes are severely heightened, a lesson Collinson learned the hard way while filming for Teton Gravity Research's 2016 film Tight Loose. While taking on what she described as a "pretty routine line" (read: burley), Collinson got tripped up while bombing over a bergschrund and blew out the ACL in her right knee.

The following year for Collinson was filled with exhaustive rehab efforts to get her back in time to film for our 2017 film Rogue Elements. Ultimately, she returned to kill it in the film, and in true fashion she spent her first day back on skis bombing heavy lines in Petersburg, Alaska. And of course, she did it all with a smile on her face.

Great article thank you http://www.dreamfilmhd.cc

Artful Powder Skiing From the Burrrlapz Boyss

The Line Skis crew, better know as Burrrlapz has released their second edit of the season and boy, is it sweet. They're calling their latest installment a "powder skiing art project" and to that, we respond, isn't all powder skiing art? However, their commitment to riding big pillow lines really does come across as pretty artful. While we've seen plenty of deep days of our own this season, we're still drooling over the bluebird skies and face shots this edit has to show. Backed with tunes

Hans Just Wants to Dance and So Do We

For those who cherish the après just as much as powder, this season has looked a little different. Hopeful youngsters like Hans here just want to find that ski town party.
