Like many freeskiers, Angel’s career was cast from a racing background. When Angel narrowly missed the US Ski Team at 18, big mountain skiing, which was always in her peripheral growing up at Snowbird, became Angel’s focus. Big mountain contests, with their free-flowing formats of just a start gate and a finish gate, were a natural fit and a breath of fresh air from the intense world of ski racing. The Utah native won the Freeskiing World Tour her freshman year competing, and repeated the following year, solidifying her place in the upper echelons of big mountain skiing.
Like many Freeskiing World Champions, Angel has begun to take her talents to the silver screen, filming with world-renowned production companies Teton Gravity Research and Sherpas Cinema. In her free time, her deeply instilled passion for the mountains is continually reflected in her kayaking, climbing and biking, often not far from where she grew up in Little Cottonwood Canyon.
