Angeli VanLaanen's innate energy and focus inspire her to always look for the next hurdle to crush. Now that her childhood dream of going pro has been checked off the list, she's focused on pushing not only her own skills but women's skiing to the next level.
The Breckenridge local has a lot of ingredients in her recipe for style. One part childhood ripping around Mt.

Her big airs and smooth spins not only rack up contest wins but also help to build a growing library of film parts.
