Pro Skier Michelle Parker Is on a Mission to Make Skiing Safer

Big mountain skier Michelle Parker grew up shredding Squaw Valley and starting skiing professionally at age 16, so she’s no stranger to the challenges of the mountains. In this episode of National Geographic's and Redbull’s joint project “TrailBlazHer”, she speaks on the importance of avalanche safety and what it has been like to grow up with the goal of becoming a pro skier. Parker has lost friends and relatives to the mountains, but rather than give up her passion in the face of these losses she started a group called SAFE AS (Skiers Advocating and Fostering Avalanche & Snow Safety). This all female group comes together to promote safe practices in the backcountry, and also compiles an all-star squad of ripping women. These ladies are more comfortable in the backcountry’s dangerous terrain than in their own backyards, so props to Parker for bringing awareness to safety in the backcountry.

So let your imagination take hold on this whole concept of "skiing" and watch as the boys take to the streets, woods, and lakes of Finland.
