What Does Angel Collinson Look For in a Ski?

Next Up

While she’s most at home on big mountain terrain, Collinson’s winters are filled with more than just spicy Alaskan spines. The bulk of her time is actually spent at ski resorts tearing through groomers and exploring off-piste. It’s one of her main ways of getting prepared for the next heli-skiing adventure.

Such diversity in terrain requires an equally diverse ski. With a redesigned Titanal frame construction and a carbon inlay, the Volkl M5 Mantra does just the job for Collinson. Engineered to master everything from crud to fresh powder, it's ultimately the combination of camber underfoot, tail rocker, and a 96mm waist that makes this one powerful all-mountain ski.
