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.

This Backcountry Moms Video Is Hilarious

In typical gals night fashion, Donna Armstrong and Carole White got together to chat about their daughters over a couple of margs. Apparently their girls, Alex Armstrong and Ginny White, “rip the shit” out of two planks. Not surprisingly, like mother like daughter, it's clear that the passion for skiing is shared by the whole family. In fact, Carole was still powder skiing at five months pregnant, because motherhood is equally at place in the backcountry.  RELATED: Michelle Parker's New Web

Andri Ragettli’s Preseason Workout is Nuts

If for whatever reason skiing doesn't work out for him (though it sure looks like it will!), Andri Ragettli might want to pursue a career in Parkour. His pre-season workout involves a whole lot of creativity and athletic prowess, and most of those moves look like they translate to snow in one way or another. Who else wants to set up a course like this at their gym?

Exploring Pemberton’s Pillows with Pep Fujas

Pep Fujas may be one of the most understated skiers in the game, effortlessly styling technical pillow lines, throwing big tricks off natural airs, and making it all look so easy. Oh. And he’s been doing it longer than most. Last winter, he headed deep into the woods of B.C. and found a fresh angle to an old zone, doing the usual: blasting endless pillows. The skier takes some time to analyze the new zone and walks us through what it takes to make it all look easy. RELATED: Pillow Popping and
