Transcript

Michelle Parker is a professional freeskier.  She takes helicopters, snowmobiles, or hikes up to steep snowy peaks and skis down them, launching off cliffs and gliding down nearly vertical slopes. She has been featured in dozens of ski films, and when Michelle goes out and films on the peaks, she is often the only woman on these outings. The other athletes, the camera people, even the helicopter pilot are usually men. Regardless, Michelle has always been motivated by women in sports. In fact, it was her mom who put her on skis before she was two years old. On this show, Michelle talks about how she’s embraced her superwoman abilities to excel as an athlete and show women around the world that they can ski some of the craziest lines.
