Johnny Collinson Always Thought He Would Be a Carpenter

Big mountain skiing is serious business. When tackling some of the most technical terrain in the world, the margin for error is slim and the consequence for any mistake can be severe. Given that knowledge, there's great value to being able to remain calm and not succumb to the mental weight of constantly putting yourself at risk of physical harm. Teton Gravity Research's Johnny Collinson–the man Hadley Hammer calls an "animation"–exemplifies that to the fullest.

Collinson, who says he expected to be a carpenter, never seems to take himself too seriously (Hammer estimates he sends anywhere from 200 to 700 emojis a day). And the results of that lighthearted nature speak for themselves: Collinson's willingness to push the limits on big mountain lines are unmatched, and his output over the past few seasons has been nothing short of prolific.

You can see more of Johnny by downloading TGR's new film  Rogue Elements, presented by REI, and read more about the personalities that made the film possible in our series Rogue Beings.

Are you f*cking kidding me?" Watch Tanner Hall hit one of the
