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 that Angel Collinson has. There's a reason she's the first and only woman to win 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.
