Professional skier and slopestyle champ Michelle Parker never trains. Sure, she skis as much as humanly possible and works on getting better at her sport every day. But, she says, “I never use the word ‘training’ when it comes to skiing.” What does Michelle like to do on skis? “My ultimate goal is to put together a super well-rounded part in a ski movie, with big mountain lines, backcountry jumps, park jumps, and rails.” The Squaw Valley kid was on snow at age two, racing by age six, and competing professionally as a freestyle skier at fifteen. She’s a regular on both the competitive freeskiing circuit and the big screen, traveling the world in search of big powdery lines. Michele won Best Female Performance at the Powder Video Awards for her segment in Superheroes of Stoke. “Filming is where I feel alive and get the most out of my skiing.” When not skiing Michele likes to hike, mountain bike, explore, camp, learn, and be with family and friends.
