After you fell all that way, would your first words be: “I’m fine and I can go up and get my sh*t, too”? Probably not. But you’re not Angel Collinson, who is pretty bad ass.
While she was skiing in Alaska’s Neacola Range, shooting for the movie Paradise Waits, snow shifted to ice and Collinson had a tumble.
How she escaped without serious injury is quite astonishing.
Collinson, who in December became the first woman to win Powder Magazine’s ‘Best Line’ award, described the fall last week on Good Morning America.
“At first I was trying to slow myself down with my arms, but then once I started picking up speed I realized that I was going to be falling for a while and the snow was icy and there was big icy snowballs,” she said.
“As I was tumbling, I covered my face and protected my head with my arms and I kind of just held on until I stopped.”
