Biography

Angeli VanLaanen started off like most others, learning to ski at a young age at Mt. Baker, falling in love with the sport, then moving up. Now, she is one of the best female pipe skiers who prides herself in being a well rounded skier who is always pushing her limits in every aspect. Angeli was then diagnosed with Lyme Disease in 2009, but didn’t let that hold her back from competing professionally on the halfpipe circuit. The Bellingham, Washington native first burst onto the scene in 2009, taking first place at the FIS World Cup halfpipe event from Deer Valley. From there she has taken 2nd at the 2013 The North Face Park and Pipe Open Series at Copper Mountain, 2nd at the 2013 New Zealand WinterGames, 2nd at the 2013 New Zealand Freeski Open, 2nd at the 2013 Dew Tour in Breckenridge, and 1st at the 2013 US Grand Prix in Park City. Angeli competed in halfpipe in the first-ever women’s Olympic halfpipe event, representing Team USA, and placed 11th.
