Michelle Parker has spent 20 years at the forefront of skiing, pioneering not just a path for women but all skiers, with inspirational fluidity in big terrain. Watch her feet when she skis … it’s like she’s dancing. Her background as a slalom racer has lent her a particular set of skills that enables her to somehow carve a lot while carrying mad speed. Her style is a thing of beauty. The Lake Tahoe native has some incredible insights into channeling our inner warriors, developing our intuition, differentiating between legitimate and illegitimate fears  and having the most fun possible on snow.
