Angel grew up in the employee housing at Snowbird Ski Resort, where her dad worked for the snow safety department. Angel, along with her brother, was homeschooled by her mother, which allowed for countless powder days. This lifestyle enabled her passion and skills to grow as a skier. After quitting ski racing at 18, she refocused her efforts into big mountain skiing.
Her love for the mountains and growing up in nature has led to her actively protecting the outdoors.
