This time of year usually means migration for the most dedicated skiers. It’s the season to pack all of your things into your truck bed and beeline it North to Alaska. It’s the epitome of a big mountain skier's paradise, and the only thing more endless than the mountains are all the lines you can ski. For obvious reasons, there’s not much AK heli-skiing happening these days—even for the pros like Angel Collinson, Griffin Post, and Nick McNutt. Nothing will replace rotor snow spray and that puckered feeling at the top of a line, but our athletes have the next best thing. Collinson, McNutt, and Post recently sat down for an exclusive Q&A about their trip to Palmer, Alaska as seen in TGR’s Winterland.
They talked about everything from exploring the Northern Chugach to weighing risk and reward with big mountain skiing. If you’ve ever wanted to better understand the inner workings of a big mountain skier's brain, then you don’t want to miss this.
