Big Mountain Skiers

Originate with Michelle Parker: The Formula

Take a behind-the-scenes look into the all-female Alaska trip featured in Matchstick Productions' "All In."

Action sports have been male-dominated for years, with only a few token females featured in ski movies for the past three decades. But this year, Matchstick Productions changed the formula with a very female-heavy film, at the center of which is an all-girls strip to Alaska. Michelle Parker, Elyse Saugstad, and Angel Collinson ski absolutely massive lines and stomp big airs that would get any skier pumped, regardless of gender.

What might not be obvious watching this segment is that, even with Red Bull funding the trip and the real-deal movie crew that was assembled, the infamously fickle Alaskan weather was less than ideal the entire time. The crew still made the most of it, but left a little earlier than anyone would have liked.
