Michelle Parker’s New Web Series Goes Deep Into the Backcountry

In the past 20 years, backcountry skiing has evolved dramatically. For skier Michelle Parker who’s been dedicated to freeskiing since the age of 15, she’s witnessed that evolution throughout the course of her career. Now at the age of 31, she still feels like the only limit is her imagination. Her new web series, Originate, will follow her development as a skier as well as many constantly changing backcountry zones: Japan, British Columbia, and Alaska. Meanwhile, she’s joined by a few familiar faces, our very own Angel Collinson and Elyse Saugstad. The series just dropped and episode one is available now.

This Backcountry Mom’s Video Is Hilarious

In typical gals night fashion, Donna Armstrong and Carole White got together to chat about their daughters over a couple of margs. Apparently their girls, Alex Armstrong and Ginny White, “rip the shit” out of two planks. Not surprisingly, like mother like daughter, it's clear that the passion for skiing is shared by the whole family. In fact, Carole was still powder skiing at five months pregnant, because motherhood is equally at place in the backcountry.  RELATED: Michelle Parker's New Web
